Freezing drizzle, freezing temps mean slick roads

Dry air is working in, but we still have some areas of freezing drizzle.

Temperatures are still at or just below freezing and will only make it a couple more degrees before northwest winds kick in and start to draw down some cold Canadian air.

Temperatures will begin to drop when the winds turn. The winds will be strong, too, gusting to around 30 mph at times.

Any snow that fell this morning has a crust of ice on top, so blowing snow should not be a concern this afternoon.

However, the falling temperatures will refreeze any surface that managed to melt, including parking lots, driveways and sidewalks.

Cold weather sticks around through Thursday before warming for the weekend.
