Slick roads will be part of some morning commutes

Some areas of Western New York will see some freezing rain during Wednesday morning's commute.

A steady rain is moving north from the Southern Tier and there will be some freezing rain on the front edge of it, said National Weather Service meteorologist Bob Hamilton.

The parking lot at the weather service in Cheektowaga is coated in ice, Hamilton said, and about 60 percent of the area got some freezing rain overnight.

As temperatures rise this morning, any ice on roads should be melted by 8 or 9 a.m., he said.

The rain will stick around throughout the day through tonight, and it may be heavy starting in the late morning, forecasters predict.

Today's high temperatures will range from the upper 30s to lower 40s. Low temperatures tonight will dip only into the upper 30s.

Rain showers are expected to stick around into Thursday morning.
