Our weather will have a major impact today into Wednesday morning. We’ll start to see the cold weather moving through the area throughout much of the day weaken tonight, but temperatures won’t stay above freezing throughout. This will compound the problem tonight as icy bridges and overpasses will remain icy through the night.
