...Some spotty light freezing rain may impact travel overnight...

Spotty light precipitation is moving into western New England
tonight. Temperatures are near or below freezing so any
precipitation may fall as light freezing rain which could result
in some icy spots. Precipitation is very light, but it only takes
a trace amount of ice to cause slippery conditions.

In addition, patchy fog and moisture near the ground may result in
areas of black ice even if there is no precipitation.

Motorists should exercise caution overnight and be prepared for
some slick spots on roadways.
