It’s going to get really ugly around here the next 3 days. I remember the 2015 flash freeze because I went down JPJ in uniform on my backside (regrettably there is no video).
A flash freeze is just that. One minute it's slush, the next minute it's frozen solid. Not a good time for new drivers - or any drivers to be on the road. It looks like it starts getting dicey after 6pm Tues.
We can't pretreat because it will be raining prior to the snow and freeze and the temps Wed and Thursday near or below freezing. Closings probably Wed and Thu.
Tues Midmorning – Rain will start
Tues around 4-5pm Snow begins
Tues 6-8pm FLASH FREEZE POSSIBLE
Wed – Closings probable
National Weather Service

* A low pressure system will be developing near the area Tuesday as a strong cold front crosses the region. Precip may start briefly as freezing rain Tuesday morning. Later in the day, rain changing to accumulating snow is likely Tuesday afternoon and evening.
