Special Statement
Issued: 3:01 PM CST Feb. 16, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Light wintry mix possible tonight...

Very light precipitation will return to the area tonight, as
temperatures fall to near or just below the freezing mark.

Most of the precipitation that falls will likely be in the form of
very light snow, freezing drizzle, and patchy light freezing rain.

Although only a few hundredths of an inch of this wintry mix is
expected, the precipitation may be enough to wet roadways and make
them slick at times. The most impacted areas will likely be
bridges, overpasses, as well as secondary or untreated roads.

Temperatures are expected to rise above freezing, especially after
midnight. This will change any precipitation that falls to just
rain over a majority of the area.

If you plan travel overnight, drive according to the weather
conditions. Allow a little extra time to reach your destination.
Be watchful for slick spots on roadways and sidewalks.
