According to the National Weather Service in Shreveport, black ice will be possible across much of the region early this morning.
Many roadways, bridges, and overpasses remained wet as temperatures fell below freezing across North Louisiana and Deep East Texas, with black ice developing over these areas thru the night, and persisting across the remainder of the region as well. The black ice is expected to linger through much of the morning Friday, until temperatures are able to climb back above freezing areawide by late morning into the afternoon.
Motorists that must drive early Friday morning are urged to slow down and allow for extra travel time during their commute. Be especially cautious when driving over bridges and overpasses, as well as some secondary, less traveled roadways, as these areas will be the most susceptible for black ice formation.
