...AREAS OF BLACK ICE CAUSING TREACHEROUS ROAD CONDITIONS THIS MORNING AND TONIGHT... A winter storm affected much of the region with ice, snow, and sleet yesterday. Roads became wet and slushy as temperatures warmed Sunday afternoon, yet many of those roads have become icy again this morning. Slick driving conditions will persist before temperatures rise above freezing between 10 am and noon. Although some melting is expected this afternoon under abundant sunshine, some secondary or shaded roads may remain treacherous throughout the day. Areas of black ice will develop again tonight and make for hazardous driving conditions for the Tuesday morning commute. Transportation agencies are advising the public to stay off roads this morning unless absolutely necessary. Any motorists that do venture out are urged to use extreme caution. If a road looks wet, it likely is covered in a thin sheet of ice.
