The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook cautioning of sleet in some areas of Orange County early Saturday morning.
Early morning temperatures are forecast to hover just around the freezing mark as a combination of rain and sleet overspreads Orange County by daybreak, according to the National Weather Service’s office in Upton, NY.
“There is a potential for a light accumulation of sleet by daybreak Saturday, mainly above 500 feet,” the National Weather Service cautions. They also advise that a “glaze of ice” could be possible in those areas.
For the lower elevations, sleet is also possible, but little to no accumulation is expected.
The sloppy mix is expected to transition to plain rain by late morning or noontime.
