Moisture that broke containment during the Northwest flow snow
event this evening and brought snow flurries to light snow across
portions of the northern foothills back towards the northern
mountains will continue to gradually dissipate before midnight as
drier air begins to move into the region. A few locations did
report a dusting of snow on grassy areas and less traveled
roadways. Combined with temperatures at or below freezing expected
overnight, icy road conditions/patchy areas of black ice are
possible, especially on bridges and overpasses, where snow was
able to melt and will refreeze tonight and/or where isolated areas
of light snow accumulation occurred.

Across the higher elevations, above 3500 feet, winds of 15 to 30
mph with gusts up to 40 mph are expected through the overnight
hours. This along with brief snow showers which are expected to
taper off towards midnight could temporarily reduce visibility.

Motorist are urged to use caution while traveling, especially at
night when it is more difficult to see ice on roadways.
