...Black Ice May Result in Slick Roads Tonight and Thursday

With skies clearing and light winds expected overnight,
temperatures will plummet into the low to mid 20s. Some areas that
received heavier snowfall may dip into the teens. Any melting of
slushy snow on road surfaces from Wednesday afternoon and evening
will refreeze tonight, resulting in black ice. Some roads could
become quite slick late tonight. This will also impact the
Thursday morning commute. Motorists should use caution. Black ice
is extremely difficult to see at night.

In addition, there have been multiple reports of very shallow fog
(but dense in spots) forming over the snowpack across the
Louisville metro and in surrounding counties. The fog is patchy,
but could reduce visibility to less than one mile. Low beam
headlights are recommended in fog. Take it slow, and be prepared
for sudden changes in visibility.
