...Very Cold Temperatures and Patchy Ice on Roads Through
Wednesday Morning...

Temperatures will stay below freezing tonight and Wednesday
morning, and any snow or liquid on the roads could turn to ice
with the very cold temperatures. Drivers should use caution
today. What appear to be wet spots on roads may actually be ice.
Motorists need to be especially careful on bridges and overpasses
where slippery spots often develop first.

Temperatures will fall into the teens or single digits overnight,
and even though winds will be light, wind chill values will be
near zero degrees. Dress warmly if you venture out, and keep a
winter travel kit in your vehicle.
