The Season of Freezing Rain
The weather in Buffalo has been all over the place these past few weeks. Ranging from the high forties to the single digits in temperature. During times of unpredictable weather like this, it’s always a good idea to prepare for freezing rain. This occurs when the ground temperatures are freezing, but the air temperature is above freezing. Precipitation hits the ground and instantly freezes creating ice on the sidewalks and roads. During storms like these, it’s important to be extra cautious when walking outside and driving. This ice may also form across your roofline and drip to create icicles. Be careful avoiding any hanging ice above. To best prepare yourself for a freezing rain storm, be aware of the upcoming weather. This will allow you to plan your day accordingly and make informed decisions. You can also purchase salt for your driveway and sidewalks to help melt the ice. Be sure to take extra caution during storm times to ensure your safety and your neighbors.
