Frozen lakes and rivers-- for now

Last week's frigid temperatures froze many of the area rivers and lakes, including Pinchot Lake at Gifford Pinchot State Park. Mike DiMatteo of Newberry Township tried ice fishing with no luck, while Earlene Dormer and Dean Swartz of Manchester Township put on skates --Swartz' were brand new-- and carved some designs in the snow. Monday's weather will be a mixed bag of rain, snow and sleet, a transition to Wednesday's expected high temperatures of 60 degrees.
 
For Monday--
HAZARD TYPES... SNOW AND SLEET CHANGING TO A PERIOD OF FREEZING RAIN.
* ACCUMULATIONS... 1 OR 2 INCHES OF SNOW AND SLEET... FOLLOWED BY AROUND A TENTH OF AN INCH OF ICE ACCRETION.
* TIMING... AFTER MIDNIGHT IN THE WESTERN MOUNTAINS AND IN THE PREDAWN HOURS MONDAY... LASTING THROUGH MONDAY AFTERNOON.
* IMPACTS... SNOW COVERED AND SLUSHY ROADS... THEN A LIGHT ACCUMULATION OF ICE ON OUTDOOR OBJECTS AND UNTREATED ROAD SURFACES AND WALKWAYS. IN MANY AREAS... THE WINTRY MIX OF PRECIPITATION WILL BE HEAVIEST DURING THE MORNING COMMUTE.
