What this event lacks: (1) moisture; most models churn out about a tenth of an inch; (2) persistent cold air; temperatures will be increasing through the day tomorrow.
What this event could do: Even the slightest ice accumulation i.e. a few 1/100ths of an inch can mean slick spots, for the morning commute. Again, as has been the case in the past week, its not so much about the amount of precipitation, but bad timing of light amounts that coincide with rush hour.
At 3 pm today, NWS issued Winter Weather Advisories across a broad region:
The warm front ushers in a dramatic change in our weather pattern for mid-week - the arrival of mild air and showery weather. This will be caused by a vigorous low pressure system approaching from the Plains - and one that could very well produce severe thunderstorms in the Wed-Thurs time frame - for our region - perhaps even the threat of a derecho (!) No joke...here's the Storm Prediction Center's forecast for Wednesday of this week, highlighting the potential for widespread severe thunderstorms, carrying a probability of wind damage:
Intense wintertime low pressure systems sometimes produce a type of derecho, called a serial derecho, in their warm sector - as part of a squall line of thunderstorms.
To say the least, it's going to be a very interesting week.
