Please translate the forecast for me

So I'm looking at the 24 hour forecast ...

and it looks to me like it's going to start raining around midnight, then get colder, and it will be below freezing at 9 AM.

This sounds like a recipe for ice city to me, which is bad news as I appear to be living someplace where people aren't required by law to shovel the snow off of the sidewalks in front of their residence/place of business. I don't really want to walk to work on that.

Anyone have a different take on what it will be like, say, at 8 AM tomorrow?

It will be a lot like Seattle over Christmas. I'm sorry.

That's not rain, it's sleet... not that it won't be icy. I am not going anywhere tomorrow.

Actually we had about 8 inches over a couple of weeks in December ('08). Which melted and refroze and was covered over again by more snow. The city pretty much shut down. NOT FUN. (Unless you got to stay home and play in it, which I didn't.)

Yeah, I am not sure what you're talking about... I meant the icon on the BBC website was sleet not rain. Not that it makes much difference..

Ah, yes, which I was reading as mixed snow and rain. But if it rains and then freezes, we're screwed and tomorrow is a "stay at home training day" for me. I've got the books, that's for sure!

The BBC is predicting based on X and it may be substantially wrong in either direction. Most useful is nearest weather observation +/- tiny regional differences as even a few miles can change temp by significant amount.

Nasty weather regardless ;(

It is believed by some, although others hold it to be a misconception, that the view of English law is that if you shovel the snow off the pavement in front of your house you may make it more, rather than less, slippery at that point or at some other point, and that you would therefore be liable for consequential injuries.

Article from Times online, as an example

According to one of the weather presenters there was only one borough, his, that was wise enough to go round with snowploughs, THEN the saltgritters! There was one political guy stating that they were dusting off a few snowploughs for use. (This was after the snow had caused problems.)

We may get a repeat of this next month, so watch out folks.
The only way I may get out is by foot.
