Icy Morning

So a big downside to the warm weekend, is what we saw this morning. The pavement warmed up above freezing over the weekend that the first few hours of snow yesterday melted the snow, then once the temperatures finally cooled the blacktop and concrete below freezing, it iced back over.  That coupled with the light snow on top of it makes things even worse because what looks like a little snow actually has hiding underneath of it.  With temperatures in the mid 20's for today, salt should take care of the ice, but untreated roadways will remain icy.  The snow will taper off this afternoon, but more snow is on the way for Wednesday night and Thursday morning.  Accumulations right now look pretty light for the next system, but as many found out this morning, it doesn't take much to cause problems on the roads.  Travel safe and have a good one!
