Wasn’t that fun! If you were up early you witnessed a wild scene this morning…heavy rain flipped to heavy sleet and then nearly white-out conditions as a dynamic system barreled through the State.

Sandwiched between some mighty fine weather will be a super soaking tonight and early tomorrow morning. An area of low pressure with Gulf of Mexico origins is headed up the East Coast.
