Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 11:47 PM EST Feb. 20, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Lingering light icing possible overnight...

Only spotty light freezing rain or freezing drizzle will occur the
remainder of the night as precipitation decreases and temperatures
rise. However this may be enough to cause added spotty icing on
elevated surfaces for a few hours after midnight before warmer air
finally wins out. Also residual ice from earlier may be enough to
cause tree limbs to come down resulting in power outages. Most
locations should rise above freezing before daybreak on Thursday
allowing for rapid melting into Thursday morning. If planning to
travel overnight, be alert for slick spots and possible tree
limbs that might have fallen in the Road.
