Slippery roads make for a dangerous Tuesday morning commute. Are there some warmer temperatures on the way?

BRIDGEPORT, W. Va. (WDTV) - Sleet, snow, and rain from Monday have left the roads across NCWV slippery and wet overnight. Temperatures overnight hovered around freezing which created some icy spots and dangerous travel conditions for Tuesday morning. Some areas of patchy fog this morning will only reduce visibility, making for some treacherous travel. Allow yourself extra time to get to your destination and take it slow on the roads.

Despite the lack of sunshine in the forecast for Tuesday, temperatures will still climb into the upper 30's and lower 40's across the area. As temperatures rise through the day, road conditions are expected to improve. Wet roads should dry out and temperatures above freezing are expected to melt some of the ice and snow.

Even better news is the warm up coming for the second half of this work week! The warmth that will be moving into the region is being welcomed with open arms as the arctic air we've been dealing with slowly begins to retreat. Daytime highs on Wednesday will climb well into the middle and upper 50's across the area. As high pressure continues to track eastward, it will push unseasonably warm temperatures out of the south into our region for Thursday. We will soar into the middle 60's by Thursday afternoon! Daytime highs Thursday will be over 20 degrees above average! However what goes up, must come down. These warmer temperatures retreat for the later half of this coming weekend bringing those afternoon temperatures back down into the 20's.
