The National Weather Service issued a special weather statement urging motorists to be cautious of black ice forming on roadways, Monday morning.
Much colder air moved in overnight, and as the rain exits there may be some snow showers and flurries before ending. Accumulations of less than an inch will be possible across some of the higher elevations.
With Sunday’s rain and temperatures falling, many roadways will have areas where the surface will remain wet long after the precipitation ends. Patches of black ice are likely to form, making roadways hazardous.
Officials said that even though a road may seem dry, there may be little or no warning of patches of dangerous ice that lie ahead. If you are driving be very cautious during the Monday morning commute.
