Weather alerts issued ahead of winter storm

Downed trees could be a concern in some areas due to the storm. With a layer of ice under a few inches of snow, travel could become quite treacherous, especially during the evening and overnight hours. Track temperatures and our next snow chances with our Local4Casters app.

A flash freeze occurs when there's a rapid drop in temperature, causing a quick freeze of water already on the ground such as from rain or melted snow. The ice will result will result in very slippery conditions on sidewalks, roads and bridges, resulting in hard travel conditions.

Light freezing rain and a wintry mix are expected from 8 a.m.to 3 p.m. Thursday, the weather service said. By Thursday, the temperature could stretch into the lower 20s. There's a chance of snow on Sunday and Monday.

Hazardous travel is expected for most locations today as our first winter storm of the season bares down.

Rain will change to freezing rain Friday morning and then change to accumulating snow by late Friday afternoon, according to the forecast. Highs will reach the upper 20s on Friday. "Travel will be icy and risky, especially Saturday morning". New snow and sleet accumulation of less than a half inch possible. However, it should turn to snow by the afternoon.

The National Weather Service has issued a WINTER STORM WARNING for Central Montana through Noon on Friday.

A mixture of rain and snow will begin falling between midnight and 1 a.m. early Thursday morning in the Kearney area, according to the National Weather Service.

A powerful cold front is bringing below freezing temperatures as it sweeps through eastern Iowa and western IL.

Gusting winds may also cause power outages.

Ice accumulations are expected to be less than one-tenth of an inch in Lauderdale County and possibly extend into northern portions of Colbert County, the graphics indicate. This is a positive as it could cut down on the ice accumulations out to our west but reagrdless there is still the possibility of freezing rain.

The system will move out of the region by Friday evening.

Overview: A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued from Friday morning until Saturday morning, for most of the ABC 36 viewing area.

Officially, 0.01 inches of precipitation was recorded at the Dane County Regional Airport on Wednesday, boosting Madison's January and 2018 total to 0.04 inches, 0.37 inches below normal. It should continue to rain over most of Western Kentucky.

TUESDAY: Partly cloudy skies and snow flurries are possible, with a high temperature of 19 degrees. Temperatures are near the freezing mark. We are watching a couple fast moving areas of low pressure which will move through this weekend. "But the later they can come in the more it will allow that to happen".
