...Period of Light Freezing Rain Friday Morning... .Low pressure tracking across the Ohio Valley into the Great Lakes will spread rain across the Mid Atlantic region beginning late tonight or early Friday, continuing into Friday night. The precipitation may begin as freezing rain, and perhaps even briefly as snow or sleet near the Interstate 64 corridor, before changing to all rain during the mid to late morning.

With temperatures hovering near 32F, ice accumulations are expected to primarily be confined to elevated objects such as trees, power lines, and decks, as well as some untreated bridges and overpasses.
