...HAZARDOUS TRAVEL CONDITIONS TONIGHT DUE TO BLACK ICE AND FREEZING
FOG...

AS TEMPERATURES TONIGHT FALL INTO THE 20S...MELTED SNOW AND
SLUSH FROM TODAY`S SNOWFALL WILL REFREEZE. THIS WILL MAKE FOR
POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS TRAVEL INTO THE FRIDAY MORNING RUSH
HOUR...ESPECIALLY ON SECONDARY AND NEIGHBORHOOD ROADS...AND
BRIDGES AND OVERPASSES. MOTORISTS SHOULD BE ALERT FOR AREAS OF BLACK
ICE ON AREA ROADWAYS. IN ADDITION...PATCHY FOG IS EXPECTED TO
CONTINUE DEVELOPING ACROSS PORTIONS OF CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN VIRGINIA
DUE TO SOME CLEARING AND LIGHT WINDS. THE FOG MAY DEPOSIT A LIGHT
COATING OF ICE ON ROADS...ENHANCING THE DRIVING DANGER OVERNIGHT. IF
YOU ENCOUNTER AN ICY PATCH...RELEASE THE ACCELERATOR...AND PUMP YOUR
BRAKES LIGHTLY TO AVOID SKIDDING. DRIVE DEFENSIVELY AND ALLOW FOR
EXTRA TIME TO REACH YOUR DESTINATION. AVOID ANY SUDDEN STOPS OR
ACCELERATIONS.
