Freezing Rain Possible Early Monday Morning, Advisories Issued

Latest models into the ABC 13 Weather Center show most of the freezing rain (in purple) moving through after midnight and ending before sunrise Monday.

Lynchburg, VA - A small area of rain is likely to develop after midnight Sunday night and last for a few hours, into the Early Morning on Monday.

Because many surfaces are very cold, and temperatures are below freezing, the moisture will fall as rain, then re-freeze after making contact with elevated surfaces like decks, porches, sidewalks, along with bridges and overpasses.

Not much moisture is expected from the system, but it doesn't take a much in the way of ice to make for a dicey early Monday Morning commute for some.

The National Weather Service has issued a FREEZING RAIN ADVISORY for most of the ABC 13 Viewing Area from 1 AM Monday through 10 AM.

The latest model data into the ABC 13 Weather Center suggests most of the freezing rain will take place between midnight and 5 a.m. Monday.

Either way, take caution on the roads if you plan on being out late Sunday Night or very early on Monday. We will likely see conditions improve by mid-morning Monday.

Stay with ABC 13 and for the very latest.

ABC 13 Meteorologist Lyndsay Tapases will have complete updates starting at 5 a.m. on Good Morning Virginia.
