THIS INFORMATION FROM A NEWS RELEASE SENT TO THE WWAY NEWSCHANNEL 3 NEWSROOM

RALEIGH, NC (NCDOT) -- With ice and snow melting from Saturday and today's storm, the possibility exists that water could freeze on North Carolina's highways overnight as temperatures drop. The NC Department of Transportation warns motorists to drive carefully and watch for black ice on all highways.

Many roads across all 100 counties in North Carolina were covered in snow. Crews spread salt and sand on roads Wednesday and Thursday to provide traction and help with the snow removal process. However, motorists are urged to use extreme caution if they have to drive tonight and Monday morning. Bridges and overpasses tend to freeze before the roads and could be slick.

NCDOT encourages motorists to "know before they go" about road conditions by calling 511, the state's toll-free travel information line, or visiting the department's online

Traveler Information Management System. Citizens can also get updates on our winter weather response by following NCDOT on Twitter.
