...Frost Continues to Develop on Interior Roads...

Frost is developing on the paved roads in the interior
contributing to slick road conditions.

As the Freezing Drizzle ends this morning, warm moist air will 
continue to flow into the interior over the frozen road surfaces.
As the warmer air moves over the frozen roads frost is developing
and contributing to the slick road conditions as cars drive on 
the roads compacting the frost into a thin layer of ice.

High traffic roads may improve through the day, while lower 
traffic secondary roads will remain slick.

Temperatures will remain warm through Wednesday with highs in the
20s and 30s.
