Wet snowflakes late Tuesday night and and freezing temperatures overnight might not have a major effect on your Wednesday morning commute, forecasters say.

AccuWeather's John Dugoenski says the recent warming trend has increased ground temperatures, which might prevent roadways from freezing.

"Even when the air temperature gets below freezing Tuesday night, I don't see any wet roads freezing up," Dugoenski says. "(The increased ground temperatures) and the combination of that plus the wind out there is so strong that once the precipitation does the end, the wind is going to dry out any of the roadways before they get below freezing."

Dugoenski adds it's not uncommon to see the temperature swings we've seen recently.

It's forecast to be cold in the morning Wednesday, but sunny with a high of 51.
