Many roads and sidewalks around Arlington and the D.C. area remain slick as temperatures climb back above freezing. Authorities are urging those who do have to drive to be extra cautious, while those who can delay their trips should.
GM! Crews have continued to treat roads with salt & sand but icy patches exist after last night's refreeze. If you can't delay your trip, pls take things very slow and assume anything that looks wet is icy. Also, visibility is a concern in some areas due to fog. Pls be safe!
