Sleet, freezing rain on the way; plan for slippery roads Tuesday night

Environment Canada says an area of freezing rain is expected to move over southwestern Ontario in the morning. Temperatures will hover around the freezing mark overnight, with a low of 1 C.

According to the weather agency, freezing rain is expected for Wednesday. Mainly freezing rain along with sleet/ice pellets/snow and even some rain is likely. Crews will pretreat routes Tuesday and treat roads Tuesday and Wednesday. Heavy freezing rain starts the week, followed by a quick blast of snow midweek, and then blowing snow and cold brings it to an end. Temperatures late Saturday are running a full 20-degrees warmer in some locations. Exactly how much snow the foothills could see is not exactly clear, but the snow level could drop to the 1500' level after midnight.

Winter Storm Warnings have been expanded to cover much of Carbon County, to include Rawlins, Baggs, Elk Mountain, and Arlington, as well as the Snowy Range today through Wednesday. Ice pellet and freezing rain amounts will vary widely.
