Weather forecast: Slick spots this morning, but dry today

The winter storm has departed leaving in its wake anywhere from 4 to 8 inches of snow on the ground in the Rochester area.

SLICK SPOTS: Areas of black ice formed in the overnight owing to a clearing sky and rapidly dropping temperatures into the teens. Be careful on secondary, untreated, and elevated road surfaces this morning. Black ice can be hard to see, so watch your step heading out the door and onto some roadways. 

A brief break from the wintry weather arrives today with partial sunshine and temperatures a few degrees above freezing. Scattered shower showers will return later into the night and will continue into Wednesday and Wednesday night. This could bring some additional very minor accumulation, but nothing significant of impact, at least for our viewing area. A few snow showers will be around Thursday and Friday as well.
