Bundle up and stay dry

(STORM TRACKER WEATHER CENTER) -  The light rain showers will begin to wind down as we head into the evening hours as the low pressure system begins to shift east and take the moisture with it.

While most of us have seen a cold rain, it has been a much different story for our neighbors to our north.

We have been getting reports of several accidents on roadways across the Tyler, Longview, and Marshall areas this afternoon. 

Rain has changed over and mixed with sleet and snow, making for a travel headache in areas along Interstate 20.  If you were planning on traveling northbound to these areas, you may want to hold off until tomorrow as roadways will remain very slick and icy.

Even though most of us have seen just the liquid form of precipitation, it should be noted that we could be looking at some slick roadways early tomorrow morning as you head back to work and school.  That's due to the fact that as temperatures dip down to below freezing tonight, any standing water will freeze on contact.  Some freezing drizzle is also possible overnight.

Elevated areas, such as bridges and overpasses will be the main areas affected on Monday morning.

You can track the rain today with our new Interactive Radar.  This feature allows you to track the rain where you live and across the state as well.  Keep it tuned to KTRE-TV and right here at ktre.com.  We'll keep you updated.
