…ROADS MAY BRIEFLY BECOME ICY THIS EVENING…

AIR TEMPERATURES WERE HOVERING AROUND THE FREEZING MARK LATE THIS AFTERNOON…BUT ROAD SURFACE TEMPERATURES REMAINED ABOVE FREEZING FROM HIGHWAY 20 TO THE MISSOURI BORDER THANKS TO SEASONAL DAYTIME HEATING…CLOUDS AND MOISTURE. THESE CONDITIONS…WITH JUST WET ROADS AND MAINLY DRIZZLE…SHOULD PERSIST INTO THE EVENING COMMUTE. HOWEVER SHORTLY AFTER THAT TIME…FROM 600 PM UNTIL LATER THIS EVENING WHEN THE DRIZZLE AND FREEZING DRIZZLE END…SCATTERED SLICK SPOTS MAY DEVELOP. MOTORISTS PLANNING TRAVEL LATER THIS EVENING SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR THE POTENTIAL OF SEVERAL HOURS WITH DETERIORATING DRIVING CONDITIONS AND SLICK ROADS.
