Wild Monday...

Today's weather is something that is quite unusual. Amazing temperature drops will occur today, and a lot of central NC should be sub-freezing by lunchtime-ish (sooner for some, later further south). As these temp drops occur, rain will change over to a wintry mix of sleet, freezing rain, snow, and a little lingering rain. For a lot of areas though, sleet should take over as the primary precipitation type for a period of time.

This is not an event to really focus on accumulation amounts, but if all goes as it appears, many areas should get the ground covered with at least a little precip.

The biggest takeaway is driving conditions. Driving conditions should really do downhill, especially on untreated roads, by later this afternoon and evening. So, the potential is there for a messy afternoon commute, especially I-40 and points north. Whatever the form the precip is in, any liquid on the roads will quickly freeze this evening as overnight lows will plunge into the teens for most. So, travel problems will be quite likely in many areas tomorrow morning.
