Wednesday's Weather Is Problematic

So far so good this winter, but Wednesday looks like one of those storms where the rain/snow/sleet/rain line appears to be on the I-84 corridor.

The morning commute looks OK Wednesday, but by early afternoon, a question arises about the rain/snow line.

This is problematic. The National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory followed by a Warning for northern Fairfield County at 6:25 p.m. Tuesday that won't expire until 10 a.m. Thursday. Wednesday will be trouble.

Tuesday will have a low of 24 degrees with a calm 5 mph breeze.

On Wednesday the snow will start before 3 p.m., and it will be followed by rain, snow and sleet. The high temperature will be 38 degrees. The weather service said snow and sleet could accumulate to 1 to 2 inches, and the likelihood of this all happening is 100 percent. That is a guarantee for weather, which raises its own question. I thought the only guarantees were death and taxes. Add to that list, rain, snow or sleet on Feb. 29.

On Wednesday night, the low will be 30 degrees and more rain/sleet is likely, again 100 percent guaranteed by the National Weather Service.

Thursday will be 43, so what falls after 8 a.m. will be rain, according to the National Weather Service.

The other guarantee is a headache for the parents who will now have to leave work early to pick up their kids from school due to this weather! Ugh!
