Rain, ice expected for Monday morning commute

Bess Adler, Metro

Freezing rain could create “hazardous travel conditions” for the Monday morning commute, according to National Weather Service meteorologist David Stark.

Trace amounts of snow are expected, but early morning freezing rain is expected to create more travel problems and lead to icy roads.

Any snow will change to rain after 10 a.m., and temperatures will rise to the upper 30s by the afternoon.

The Department of Sanitation has issued a snow alert starting at 12 a.m. Monday, which prepares crews in case plowing or salt spreading is needed.

Trash collection and alternate side parking remain in effect Monday.

Not much precipitation is expected the rest of the workweek, Stark said, and the National Weather service is forecasting dry weather. Temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday will linger around the lower 30s, with overnight temperatures in the teens and low 20s.

Thursday could see a high in the upper 30s, and Friday’s high will dip back to the low 30s.
