Below freezing morning temps make for icy road conditions

WASHINGTON — Drivers on area roads should take caution Wednesday morning, as some routes are icy.

“Anything that looks wet is probably iced over,” said WTOP’s Jack Taylor in the traffic center.

Storm Team 4 meteorologist Matt Ritter said some parts of the area are seeing temperatures in the teens and low 20s shortly before 6 a.m. Below freezing temperatures that greeted Wednesday morning are expected to climb into the mid 40s later in the day.
