Not As Much Ice...

It looks like the ice threat has diminished for us this evening and overnight. While there still could be some light ice accumulations, the surge of warm air from the south should bring the temperatures up rather quickly making for just a few hours of potential for freezing rain.

However there still will be slick travel conditions from late afternoon into tomorrow morning. One should be careful exercising any travel plans. By Christmas Eve, we should be all rain washing away any snow/sleet/ice laying around.

A more significant threat come this weekend with a potential for severe weather along with flooding. The warm temperatures across the state (middle 40's north to lower 60's south) along with 1"+ possible of rain will cause rapid melting of exiting snow and ice bringing the potential for flooding to many areas.
