...Cold Temperatures and Patchy Ice on Secondary Roads are
expected Overnight through Friday Morning...
The cold airmass will remain across the area overnight with
temperatures dropping down into the teens most locations.
Dress appropriately if you must go outside. Wear several layers of
clothing, hat and gloves.
In addition, any moisture left on area roadways will refreeze
tonight creating patchy areas of black ice. The main concern for
black ice is across secondary roads and shaded areas where snow
and ice have not melted. Please use extra caution while traveling
tonight and early Friday morning.
