Monday morning may feature very slick conditions for the Monday morning commute in parts of New York and New England. A light coating of freezing rain will coat many surface with ice, and could be enough to make travel dangerous.
A freezing rain advisory has been hoisted for parts of Vermont, New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and a small portion of Connecticut for late Sunday into Monday midday. Freezing rain is expected to fall periodically. Freezing rain is rain that freezes when it comes into contact with surfaces, leaving behind an icy coat. Be extra cautious as you hit the road for travel. Be careful on bridges and overpasses especially, as they tend to be colder and more susceptible to icing than roadways with insulating ground underneath.
In northern New Hampshire and Maine, a winter weather advisory is in effect for light ice accumulation, perhaps up to .25″ at some elevations, but also for the addition of 1-3″ of snow and sleet accumulation.
