(KFVS) - Black ice is possible on the roads tonight as what snow and ice that fell is melting and will refreeze.

Roads that are still wet or snow-covered like dirt roads and untreated lanes will likely re-freeze. There could be some patchy dense fog too.

According to Meteorologist Brian Alworth, clearing may be developing southwest to northeast by around sunset which would be bad timing for the commute this evening as surface temps could dip to just below freezing pretty quickly.

The overnight hours will feature clearing skies.

Watch for patchy black ice! With skies clearing out, temps are going to be quickly dropping to below freezing this...

Most of the medium-range is looking quiet and mainly dry.

The upper flow flattens out for Friday and Saturday, resulting in dry and warmer conditions.

Right now the forecast for next Thursday is mostly sunny and seasonably cool, with highs in the low to mid 50s.

A First Alert Action Day was declared through much of Thursday for winter weather.

Much of the Heartland received 1 to 3 inches of snow, with scattered amounts of 4 to 5 inches.
