It said a wintry mix develops across the tri-state from west to east this evening. This wintry mix changes to plain rain sometime between midnight and 6 a.m. Tuesday.

This will cause slippery roadways and sidewalks, and the main threat will be to elevated surfaces and higher elevations in the advisory area.
