Freezing Rain Expected Overnight
– January 9, 2014 7:00 pm
The cold weather won’t quit this week. From polar vortex cold on Tuesday and Wednesday to the threat of freezing rain on Friday.
A freezing rain advisory will go into effect at 11 p.m. Thursday until 11 a.m. Friday. That’s when freezing rain (regular rain that freezes on contact with the ground surface) could fall and mix with some snow from time to time. About a tenth of an inch of ice could form as a result of the freezing rain, according to the National Weather Service.
The advisory is in effect for Prince William and Stafford counties, the cities of Manassas and Manassas Park, as well as the overall Washington, D.C. region.
With temperatures expected to be hovering around the 30-degree mark, the morning commute could be a slipper one.
Rain will stay with us through the day on Friday and again on Saturday, but the good news is temperatures will make a major rebound from where they were earlier this week as the mercury is expected to climb into the low 60s. Sunday will be sunny with temperatures in the low 50s.
