According to the alert, a decrease in temperatures led to areas of black ice forming on the roads. Drivers were advised to use extra caution, especially when approaching intersections and overpasses.

Traffic Reporter Josie Smith said many neighborhood streets remain icy Monday morning, while highways and interstates were "in decent shape."

Meanwhile, Chief Morning Meteorologist Ken Barlow said sunshine was expected Monday, with temperatures in the low 20s. The next chance of snowfall could be this coming weekend, Barlow said, with only a slight chance of light snow by Sunday.
