Special Statement
Issued: 5:45 PM EST Feb. 25, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Areas of fog may become locally dense overnight into early
Monday morning along with the development of patchy black ice...

Areas of fog are expected tonight... some of which may become
locally dense late tonight into early Monday morning. In
addition... temperatures will drop into the upper 20s to lower 30s
by daybreak Monday in many locations. This may result in patchy
black ice developing overnight and possibly impacting the early
Monday morning commute... especially northwest of the Boston to
Providence corridor.

Motorists planning travel late tonight into early Monday morning
should be prepared for areas of locally dense fog and pockets of
patchy black ice.

... Patchy black ice possible for the Monday morning commute...

Damp conditions remain in place through the evening hours. Skies
begin to break late this evening and during the early morning
hours which will allow the temperatures near or even above
freezing to continue to drop.

The combination of the lingering wet conditions on surfaces, and
the fact that early morning temps could drop below freezing by the
time the commute begins could lead to localized black ice
especially for interior portions of southern New England.
