inches... along with up to a tenth of an inch of ice accretion.

* Timing... beginning as snow late Tuesday afternoon and then
transitioning to sleet and freezing rain from southwest to
northeast during the overnight hours before changing to rain
towards Wednesday morning.

* Impacts... untreated roads will be snow covered and slippery
Tuesday afternoon into evening impacting the commute. Sleet and
freezing rain which is expected to fall overnight Tuesday into

are below freezing... motorists need to be especially careful on
bridges and overpasses where slippery spots can easily develop.
