A mix of light snow and light freezing rain moved across much of
the area Wednesday evening. As of 100 am, the bulk of the
precipitation had shifted off to the southeast. Although snow and
ice accumulations from the precipitation were minimal, they still
resulted in the development of slippery spots on the roads.

Anyone traveling overnight should be prepared to encounter patchy
slippery spots on the roads. Plan accordingly, and allow extra
time to reach your destination.
