Freezing rain and sleet coated area roads with ice Tuesday morning but the rain that followed washed it away as temperatures picked up.
Unfortunately, the upward temperature trend won’t last.

Parts of the northern suburbs saw light freezing rain and sleet overnight, while those in the south mostly received some light rain and drizzle.
Temperatures ticked up by mid-morning and rain melted most of the ice away.
Mist, drizzle now ending and warm enough today for the glazing of ice to melt away. Still a small chance of flurries late Wed nite and a COLD wind for Thurs & Fri. Next real concern will be in the Sun PM to late Mon. time frame. That storm does have potential. We’re watchin’ it!. pic.twitter.com/mx0qUvWHkF
