Rain, sleet greet morning commuters

January 29, 2001


With temperatures teetering just above the freezing mark, drivers were being warned this morning about a wintry mix of rain, sleet, freezing rain and even snow.

The National Weather Service in Topeka issued a winter weather advisory, warning drivers in Douglas County the roadways this morning could become slick because of the wintry mix and if the temperature drops a few degrees.

Forecasters predicted the sleet and rain would diminish by late morning.

A 40 percent chance for light snow is expected this afternoon, along with cloudy skies and temperatures in the middle 30s.

Forecasters are expecting a 50 percent chance for light snow tonight, becoming blustery with winds increasing 15 to 25 mph.
