We have a mostly to partly cloudy day, and we're staying below freezing.

Patches of ice are possible on the roads from re-freezing and lingering packed snow and ice on some back roads. Bridges, overpasses, and even the entrance/exit ramps to the interstate are common culprits for black ice.

We have some sunshine at times on this very cold Friday. There is a chilly breeze out of the Northeast. Spotty show showers are possible in the mountains.
