Good morning,

The forecast data suggests that we will see a mixture of sleet and freezing rain this afternoon and ending later this evening. We could potentially see some snow mixing in at times, but no more than an inch or less of snow/sleet accumulations is expected. Based on the cold ground temps, surfaces could cover and depending on the intensity, the evening rush could be impacted.
