Wintry precipitation has ended across the region this morning, however the combination of still wet roadways and temperatures falling through the 20s will allow for some slick spots. Motorists should use caution and watch for black ice during the morning commute. 

Allow a little extra time for travel this morning and pay especially close attention near bridges and overpasses. 

 Another round of flurries and light snow is possible this evening with little to no accumulation. However, temperatures will drop into the single digits and lower teens in many areas by dawn on Friday. 

The bitter cold temperatures combined with steady surface winds will create wind chills ranging from 9 below zero to 5 above zero. 

The coldest wind chills will likely be along and north of the Ohio River Friday morning.
