Melting Snow, Refreezing Could Cause Black Ice on Roads



    Our First Alert weather team has your forecast for Sunday, Jan. 24, 2016. (Published Sunday, Jan. 24, 2016)

    Possible refreezing of melting snow on the roadways could make for a slick commute come Monday morning. 

    Sunday was mostly sunny and breezy as residents and business owners worked to clean up from the season's first big winter storm. Drivers are reminded to clear snow completely from their vehicles before hitting the streets.

    Temperatures rose above freezing in many spots, aiding in the melting of some snow.

    Melting and refreezing will be the theme of this week. Use caution and watch for black ice in the mornings!

    Monday features sun and high clouds with temperatures in the middle and upper 30s.

    Mostly cloudy skies arrive Tuesday ahead of a cold front. Afternoon and evening rain and snow showers are possible with temperatures peaking near 40.

    Cold air moves in, at least aloft, on Wednesday, and that could yield a flurry in the hills. Temperatures will reach the low 40s, probably earlier in the day.

    Mostly sunny skies make another appearance Thursday before clouds move in Friday.

    An offshore storm needs to be watched as the work week comes to a close.

    Temperatures, especially the highs, remain above average throughout the week.
