... Count on a few slick spots overnight into Friday morning...
Temperatures will drop below freezing tonight, and any water on
the roads and sidewalks from snow melt will likely refreeze
overnight. This is especially true on untreated roads, sidewalks
and parking lots.
Those driving or walking should be alert to areas of black ice.
Temperatures warm above freezing for most after 10-11am Friday and
with sunshine will melt any ice.
