Icy conditions abound after winter storm

UPDATE 11 a.m., Dec. 11: While snow and ice are melting away around the region, people should still be wary of dangerous conditions on roads and sidewalks.

Clear skies and light winds Tuesday night allowed temperatures to plummet area-wide and anything that was wet turned to ice. Icy conditions were prevalent Wednesday morning, but the ice is melting as the day progresses.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

Wednesday will bring plenty of sun, but the temperatures may not go above the freezing mark in many spots. It will be bitterly cold with highs in the 30s.

On Wednesday evening expect partly-cloudy skies and bone-chilling temperatures with lows around 15.

CLOSINGS AND DELAYS:

Some major school systems opened late. Get the details on WTOP.com.

TRAFFIC:

There are no major traffic delays at this time and major roads are clear. Commuters found dicey side roads and black ice around the area. Commuters reported black ice on ramps, turn lanes, parking lots, bridges and side streets around the region.
