If you have to travel during current weather conditions use extreme caution

Black Ice

As a precaution icy roads will create hazardous travel conditions through Thursday morningTemperatures are currently below freezing in most if not all locations, which received ice or rain over the past 12 to 24 hours.

With temperatures expected to only fall from now through Thursday morning. Currently iced roads will remain frozen. Areas that do not have accumulated ice at this time, but have wet roadways will likely glaze over through the night.

The slick roadways will make travel extremely dangerous and motorist are urged to remain off these roads. Dubbed 'Black Ice', the clear ice that will cover roadways may appear to be only a wet road.

Take extreme caution on all roads that appear wet if traveling. As temperatures rise through mid morning tomorrow the ice will gradually taper off from east to west, with all ice likely melted by noon or so.
