The NWS says total accumulations of snow and sleet are not likely to be heavy but will be enough to cause travel disruptions on area roads.

Byrd said the biggest problem for the Metro East area will likely be freezing rain and there could be up to an inch by the time it goes through.

“Motorists should drive carefully during the commutes both Wednesday and Thursday,” Byrd said.

The weather forecast is predicted to be 29 degrees as a high today, 32 as a high Thursday, and 35 degrees for Friday. The highs Saturday and Sunday are predicted at 41 and 48 degrees and back to 42 degrees Monday and 48 degrees on Tuesday.
