...HAZARDOUS DRIVING CONDITIONS TONIGHT INTO TUESDAY MORNING...

DRIVING CONDITIONS IMPROVED THIS AFTERNOON...PARTICULARLY ON
HEAVILY TRAVELED ROADS. HOWEVER...RESIDUAL MOISTURE ON ROADWAYS
WILL REFREEZE TONIGHT INTO SMOOTH ICE. IF THERE IS CURRENTLY SLUSH
ON THE ROADS WHERE YOU ARE...EXPECT A SLICK GLAZE FOR THE MORNING
COMMUTE TUESDAY...WHICH WILL LIKELY BE MORE CHALLENGING THAN THE
DRIVING CONDITIONS WERE TODAY.

FREEZING DRIZZLE IS ALSO POSSIBLE TONIGHT INTO TUESDAY MORNING.
ALTHOUGH THIS PRECIPITATION WOULD FALL IN LIQUID FORM...WITH
SURFACE TEMPERATURES REMAINING BELOW FREEZING...THIS DRIZZLE WOULD
FREEZE ON CONTACT. THE RESULTING GLAZE WOULD IMPACT ALL ROAD
SURFACES...ONLY WORSENING DRIVING CONDITIONS.

MOTORISTS ARE URGED TO EXERCISE CAUTION. ALLOW PLENTY OF SPACE
BETWEEN YOU AND THE VEHICLE IN FRONT OF YOU. AVOID MAKING SHARP
TURNS OR BRAKING SUDDENLY.
