…A brief period of light to moderate freezing rain and sleet

A line of showers is moving northeast across northern into
northeast sections of the area late this afternoon into the early
evening hours. Some areas are seeing temperatures near or just
below freezing. As a result…a brief period of freezing
rain…possibly mixed with sleet…will be possible with this
activity as it moves northeast. Accumulations should remain light
given temperatures near freezing. However…bridges and overpasses
may become slick…especially in the higher terrain.
