...NEAR RECORD LOW TEMPERATURES EXPECTED TONIGHT...

IN THE WAKE OF OUR LATEST WINTER EVENT...FULL SUNSHINE AND AN
INCREASINGLY STRONG SUN ANGLE ALLOWED FOR CONSIDERABLE MELTING
ON AREA ROADWAYS.

HOWEVER...TEMPERATURES TONIGHT ARE EXPECTED TO PLUNGE TO WELL
BELOW FREEZING AND WILL APPROACH RECORD LOWS IN MANY AREAS. THIS
WILL ALLOW ANY WATER...SLUSH OR SNOW REMAINING ON AREA ROADS TO
FREEZE CREATING ICY AND DANGEROUS TRAVEL CONDITIONS.

ADDITIONAL MELTING WILL OCCUR ON FRIDAY WITH ANOTHER DAY OF FULL
SUNSHINE AND TEMPERATURES A FEW DEGREES WARMER THAN WHAT WAS SEEN
ON THURSDAY. HIGHS ARE EXPECTED TO TOP OUT IN THE MID 30S TO MID
40S WITH THE COLDEST TEMPERATURES OCCURRING WHERE THE SNOW PACK IS
THE DEEPEST.

PLEASE EXERCISE EXTREME CAUTION IF YOU MUST TRAVEL TONIGHT AND
ESPECIALLY AROUND SUNRISE WHEN TEMPERATURES WILL BE AT THEIR
LOWEST. ALLOW PLENTY OF TIME TO REACH YOUR DESTINATION SAFELY.
