Icy roads tonight into Monday morning

The combination of today's rain and slushy wet snow, along with temperatures falling well below freezing tonight will produce icy roads tonight into Monday, especially untreated side roads and rural highways. The wet snow was already being compacted into a slippery layer of ice on side roads this evening, and this will become more of a widespread problem overnight as northwest winds pick up in speed, and usher in much colder temperatures.. falling to minus 15C by morning. Be prepared for slippery road conditions tonight into Monday morning, with a slower commute likely especially from areas outside the city. Hopefully road maintenance crews will be working overtime tonight to treat area roadways as much as possible by the morning commute.
