Good morning! Here is a look at your forecast at the bus stop this morning:
Temperatures: 40-47° for most of central New York.
Wind chills: 35-40° for most of central New York
Sky condition & precipitation: Some rain, which will taper off after the bus stop time this morning. Check out Interactive Doppler Radar and Triple Doppler Radar.
What should I wear outside?: A winter jacket will be necessary. Even though you do not need a hat and gloves now, a hat and gloves will be a good idea this afternoon. Of course, it is ultimately your decision on what you think you and your children should wear.
Any notable driving condition issues?: None early. However, look at the next line.
Special concerns: Milder temperatures and rainfall from this morning has caused melting of snow banks. As temperatures tumble into the 20°s this afternoon, a flash freeze of roads will be possible, especially on roads that have leftover snowpack and that are on located on inclines or hills that could still be dripping water onto roads. Wet roads will likely freeze up this afternoon and into tonight without any road treatment.
