Special Statement
Issued: 7:18 PM PST Dec. 6, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Some roads likely to be icy tonight and Wednesday morning...

The coldest night so far this season will allow temperatures to
drop into the 20s for much of southwest Washington and northwest
Oregon tonight. Enough moisture lingers near the ground that roads
and sidewalks may become frosty or icy overnight... resulting in
some slick spots tonight and Wednesday morning. Secondary and
untreated roads will be most susceptible to becoming icy.

Use caution if planning on driving tonight or Wednesday morning.
Black ice can be difficult to spot at any speed... and can cause a
vehicle to lose traction with little warning.
