Although the heavy snow that fell in the Midwest on Sunday has bypassed much of the Northeast on Monday, a blast of arctic air will turn wet roads and sidewalks to ice through Monday night for some areas across the region.
While gusty winds will present a challenge to high profile vehicles, the winds along with steady traffic can help many roads dry off before the subfreezing air arrives. However, there will be some exceptions.
Mild air will accompany areas of rain ahead of a powerful cold front that will help deliver the arctic chill.
Temperatures will plunge as soon as the front moves through and will continue to drop through Monday night.
Some surfaces that are wet will ice up as the temperature dips to below freezing. Elevated surfaces such as bridge decks will likely be the first to become icy with other surfaces following shortly after.
In addition, a brief period of snow can occur in the mountains as the precipitation comes to an end.
Otherwise, travel can become treacherous for some during the evening drive home, especially across parts of New England and over the central Appalachians.
Once the dangerously cold air settles over the Northeast, the main travel concerns will shift to places downwind of the Great Lakes as a major lake-effect snow event unfolds. However, gusty winds Monday evening can lead to flight delays in the I-95 corridor.
