Jefferson Severe Watches & Warnings NOAA Weather Radio

Special Statement
Statement as of 9:08 PM CST on January 28, 2015

...Mixed precipitation expected late tonight and early Thursday...

A low pressure system passing south of Wisconsin late tonight and early Thursday will result in the development of light precipitation...especially after midnight through early Thursday morning. At this time the precipitation looks to be mainly patchy drizzle or patchy freezing drizzle.

Very light rain...very light freezing rain...sleet and some light snow are all possible...but expected amounts are looking to be lower than previous forecast guidance was indicating and look to focus more on the central portion of the state.

Warm air just off the surface has surged in ahead of the low...so until the low passes to our east there will be the potential for this mixed precipitation. Once the low passes early Thursday morning...there will be a changeover to a brief period of light snow. However little if any snow accumulation is expected.

If you have travel plans for the overnight into early Thursday use caution should you encounter any freezing drizzle or mixed precipitation.

At this time it appears...light rain...light freezing rain...sleet and some light snow are all possible.

There is uncertainty in how much of the precipitation will actually fall as freezing drizzle so an advisory is not being issued at this time.
