Some slick spots are possible tonight and into Monday morning from freezing drizzle tonight, according to News Center 7 Meteorologist Molly Coates. Bridges, overpasses, and elevated surfaces are most likely to see icy patches form. Bridges and overpasses freeze faster than roads. Rroads that appear wet can be dangerous because of potential black ice.
