The National Weather Service in Memphis has issued a Special Weather Statement warning of the possibility of "black ice" forming tonight into early Tuesday.
NWS noted that cloud cover and light winds will not allow for much drying of roadways tonight. Temperatures are expected to fall into the middle 20s tonight. Therefore, any areas with snow on roadways or wet roadways will likely refreeze.
This could result in hazardous driving conditions tonight through Tuesday morning, the NWS statement warned.
"Use caution while traveling and watch for areas of black ice, especially on elevated roadways, bridges, overpasses and shady areas."
Also watch for black ice on sidewalks and other surfaces if you are out walking late tonight or Tuesday morning.
Black ice, sometimes called clear ice, is a thin coating of glazed ice on a surface, especially on roads. The ice itself is not black, but visually transparent, allowing the often black road below to be seen through it.
