Pockets of Freezing Rain May Lead to Slick Spots

Pockets of freezing rain will remain possible into early afternoon for parts of the area. Areas most prone to slick surfaces include the Adirondacks, Mohawk Valley, Catskills, Berkshires and southern Vermont.

As temperatures warm above freezing through the afternoon, all precipitation will change over to just plain rain.
