Stay Away From Trees, Stay Home
Wednesday, October 28 - University Meteorologist, Dr. Kevin Kloesel
Periods of heavy rain with occasional lightning strikes will result in additional tree damage and localized flooding. The strongest storms might also have small hail. Temperatures will finally climb above freezing. Unfortunately, trees will continue to shed limbs as ice melts and falls. Frozen surfaces on the upper parts of buildings may also shed ice resulting in hazardous conditions near building entrances/exits. Do not walk under trees today!
By tomorrow, very windy conditions will arrive. Gusty winds could also result in additional tree limbs coming down from trees damaged by ice.
If you are looking for when pleasant weather returns? You will have to wait until Friday. After a foggy start, temperatures will approach 60F with sunshine.
