...Patchy freezing drizzle this morning...

With temperatures near or just below freezing, icy roads will
continue to be a problem this morning, the result of yesterday's
snowfall. Patchy freezing drizzle, or very light snow, is still
possible and will be a concern through mid morning, or until
temperatures climb above freezing. The higher elevations will also
experience patchy dense fog, which may also pose a hazard for
those highways which pass across mountain ridges.

Secondary and untreated roadways, as well as bridges and
overpasses, may have areas of ice. Motorists should remain alert
for slick spots including in areas of fog if traveling this
morning.

Temperatures are forecast to warm above freezing today, favoring
melting for the afternoon.
