Many roadways continue to be very icy. While primary roadways have been treated, many secondary roadways will continue to have ice, snow or both and black ice will be a major problem, reports NWS. As temperatures were in the teens Thursday night, any moisture on the ground will have turned to black ice overnight.
If you must go out, check our Traffic Page before you go.
