Most of the snow and freezing rain from yesterday is done but isolated showers of freezing drizzle are still noted on radar this morning. These showers may continue into mid-morning. There is also a good deal of fog in the viewing area, with some locations dealing with visibility of one mile. Like the rain, the fog should improve with time over the morning.
Cloudy skies will persist but the rest of the day will remain rain-free, that is until this evening. Rain moving in from the south may first arrive in the Marion and Hartford City areas late this afternoon, then into Fort Wayne after dark. However, temperatures north of Wabash, Bluffton and Berne will hover just below freezing through the evening and into tonight. The rain that falls will occur as freezing rain for much of the area. This may persist for a few hours until we warm above 32° early Tuesday morning.
Roads are already slick and they will likely be worse tonight with the light build-up of ice. Over a tenth of an inch of ice may accrete to the north and northeast of Fort Wayne. A Winter Weather Advisory will go into effect for those areas at 8 PM. Ice amounts may be less than that in Fort Wayne, but it will still be plenty to cause hazardous travel.
