Temperatures have dropped to right around freezing with some unanticipated clearing. Here are the air temps:
and the ODOT road surface temps have dropped to around freezing too:
Now a thin band of light showers is approaching from the south. Sure seems like we could see spots of freezing rain even in the lower elevations of the metro area. Possibly, but I’d be more worried about getting a few rain showers and then more clearing later tonight.
But as of now it appears to me cloud cover should thicken quite a bit later with increasing showers. That would keep temps near/above freezing and avoid any widespread re-freezing of roads. Hope I’m not wrong!
Obviously Tuesday morning is a time to check the temperatures and road conditions before you head outside!
