Before snow comes, watch out for flash freeze

By Tom Rivers, Editor Posted 12 January 2018 at 11:54 am

The National Weather Service in Buffalo is warning motorists of a flash freeze expected this afternoon and evening in Orleans County.

“Temperatures will rapidly fall below freezing across the region this afternoon and evening,” The Weather Service said. “Widespread rain across the region will transition to freezing rain and sleet this afternoon as temperatures plummet.”

The Weather Service said much of the salt on roadways has likely been washed away given the rain in the past 24 hours.

“Therefore, as temperatures dive below freezing, bridges and overpasses will likely ice up first, followed by main roadways, sidewalks and parking lots,” the Weather Service said. “Water will also begin to freeze up in areas that have experienced flooding from the rainfall and snowmelt today. Please use extra caution for the evening commute as roadways will become very slick, and adjust travel plans accordingly.”
