Precipitation is expected to taper Wednesday morning.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Watch for taillights ahead and maintain a safe following distance.

Freezing drizzle can produce thin, hard-to-detect layers of ice. Slow down driving in slippery conditions. Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas.
