Sleet, freezing rain falling across Piedmont; roads slick

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the Triad until Tuesday at 12 p.m.

Here’s the latest from Van Denton:

Good and Bad News:

The bad first….we have noticed more sleet in parts of the Triad. That is bad for roads as the ice can build up faster than it can melt on the road surface. (below the roads temps are above 40° and that kept the rain from freezing on the roads earlier…but sleet is a different story).

The good news…..the longer you get sleet the less ice buildup on trees. Sleet does not attach to the trees.

There is still a chance some areas could see some snow mix in too. Best chance for this is north and west.

Most of us will see 1/4-1/2 inch of sleet and 1/10 to 1/4 inch of freezing rain.

All areas should taper off to mist and drizzle overnight. We expect to climb back to 32 around 11am and into the upper 30s by late afternoon.

Be careful out there.
