12:14am EST Sunday: Ice Storm Update

Here is the AccuWeather Regional Radar at 11pm CST:
The purple, a mix of sleet and freezing rain, from Tennessee to Arkansas, is the rare of freezing rain that will move into the Middle Atlantic States Sunday.

Here is an idea of how much freezing rain (glaze ice) will fall:
Dr. Ryan Maue
Areas with more than 0.25" are candidates for power failures and areas with more than a half-inch will likely see power failures.

Here is the forecast map for 8am EST Sunday:

Here is the forecast map for 1pm EST Sunday:
Blue is snow (darker = heavier), green is rain, purple is freezing rain and orange is sleet (ice pellets). The Chiefs/Redskins game will be in progress when the sleet moves in if the computer model is correct.

If you are in one of the areas where power failures are possible, I urge you to prepare before roads get slick. Preparation suggestions here.
