The wet precipitation on the roadway can freeze and create “black ice,” a thin, nearly invisible coating of ice that forms on paved surfaces during low temperatures. In addition, the rain/sleet can cause bridges and overpasses to ice quickly, particularly in the evening hours when temperatures are below or near the freezing mark.
