After rain doused Greater Boston on Saturday, forecasters are cautioning motorists that roads and sidewalks around the region could be coated with black ice on Sunday morning.
The lingering moisture from Saturday’s storm combined with temperatures that dipped below freezing overnight makes for possibly hazardous conditions, National Weather Service forecasters said.
The weather service is suggesting people be on the lookout for black ice on untreated roads and sidewalks through at least 8 a.m.
“if your car’s thermometer is a degree or two above freezing, the road surface can still be freezing or below,” forecasters wrote early Sunday morning. They warned that even the NWS regional office parking lot in Norton was “a sheet of ice.”
The temperature should reach well above freezing
A storm system is looming for the beginning of the week, forecasters warned, with much of the state likely to see flakes starting Monday night. Forecasters said they expect snow accumulation to be minimal, but northern and western parts of Massachusetts might see anywhere from 1-4 inches.
