Expires 3:30 AM EST on March 06, 2015


... Slick roads due to areas of ice overnight...

As most precipitation has ended... temperatures have quickly
dropped below freezing this evening. This will allow areas of
residual slush and water to refreeze into ice overnight making for
slippery conditions on roads and sidewalks through early Friday
morning. Anyone planning to venture out should be alert for areas
of ice especially near bridges and overpasses as well as along
secondary roads.
