Sunny skies and temperatures in the 40s and 50s yesterday and today have prompted plenty of snow melt. However, the National Weather Service warns that any remaining water on untreated roads, sidewalks and parking lots will refreeze overnight. Temperatures are forecast to fall into the 20s.
Motorists are urged to continue to use caution overnight. A surface that looks wet may actually be ice.
On Saturday, temperatures are expected to reach a high near 59; and on Sunday, 61 degrees.
