Cold Tuesday Rain Ahead

**Putnam County Schools will run on a 2 hour opening delay for Tuesday**

A difficult forecast in the upcoming 24 hour period for Tuesday. I expect a cold rain event for Tuesday, although some freezing rain conditions could occur especially during the morning and evening hours. Some forecasting models show a 1-2" event for our local area. This will affect the typical places where we see street flooding and minor creek flooding so be aware of that possibility.


Temperatures are expected to rise above freezing early this morning after sunrise and top out around 40° for the high temperature with a high of just 35°. We'll only drop a few degrees tonight, but shouldn't be cold enough for a transition back to snow but again may see some freezing rain conditions develop.

ADVICE: Dress the kids warmly in the morning and prepare for a cold, steady rain

This is another situation where 1, 2, 3° makes a difference from a cold rain event to an interesting mixed precipitation event.

We'll see some moderation in temperatures and dry out as well. Highs in the upper 40's and lower 50's and lows in the 20's and 30's.

 The following week is looking SIGNIFICANTLY colder with highs only in the 30's and lows in the teens. With the right combination, we may see some winter precipitation but that is unlikely for now.
