2 AM Update

At 2 a.m., the temperature in Vinemont is 31.1. The precipitation has now changed over to mostly freezing rain, with some sleet mixed. Precip started just before 10 as sleet. Later, the sleet became mixed with snow. There was a brief changeover to all snow. Then we had a period of heavy sleet. Sleet was steady for a few hours, but it has now turned into mostly freezing rain. Roads are slushy and sleet covers grassy and elevated surfaces.

At 2:30 in Vinemont, freezing rain continues and the temp remains 31.1. Some of the sleet melted but freezing rain is accumulating on tree limbs.

2:45 - My last report for now...The temp seems to be rising 1/10th of a degree every 15-20 minutes or so. We continue to have a steady, moderate freezing rain. When the temp rises a few more degrees, we'll be in good shape. It sounds like areas to our north and east may not be so fortunate. It has been an interesting night and James did a great job with this system.
