...Light snow across the northern mountains will diminish through
the overnight hours...
...Patchy black ice expected...
Light snow fell Monday evening across the northern mountains, and
any lingering light snow showers will continue to diminish. 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.
Motorist are urged to use caution while traveling, especially at
night when it is more difficult to see ice on roadways.
