Today, the warm air advection responsible for this weekends ice storm will kick in bringing temps above freezing for the 1st day in quite a while. Partly cloudy skies will dominate so enjoy the sun before it retreats behind the clouds for a while. Snow and sleet will move in Friday and change to freezing rain or maybe even rain along the coast. This precipitation will be light however, not significant enough to cause major issues though roads will be slippery. Saturday will feature cloudy skies with the chance for light freezing rain before the real event gets underway Sunday. It will start as snow for the interior and freezing rain for the coast before everyone changes over to freezing rain. This will be heavy at times with moderate to heavy accumulations likely. This WILL NOT be anything like the ice storm of 1998. A potential comparison might be the 2008 storm though amounts will probably be less than even that.
