Same thing here, Jim. After a near-balmy  60 degrees earlier in the week, we
have had temperatures in the teens for the last three nights and not above 
freezing during the day.  This morning it was  17 degrees when we got up,and
the sun was out.  By the time we got out of early church, the sun was gone 
and the temperature had risen to 25.   The freezing rain began about noon 
promises to go on for a while.  Bummer!  We had tickets to a concert by the
Westchester Chorale, a very fine singing group, this afternoon, but I think 
be foolish to go out in this.  The thermometer says 33, but I see icicles 
on the trees and shrubs.
The difference in freezing rain and sleet is that sleet falls in frozen 
pellets like
hail while freezing rain falls as a liquid and freezes on whatever it 
making a coating of ice and icicles.  Sleet is very treacherous underfoot, 
does not do the damage that freezing rain can cause. Neither one is nice - 
is much easier to handle. Be careful when you go out.

NOAA says freezing rain before 10 AM, then sleet [don't know what the  
difference is; I thought they were the same thing] and a chance of  
snow. Currently it's a gloomy 30 degrees. Sure glad I laid in the  
weekend's libations on Thursday when it was a balmy 34.
