After freezing rain caused serious travel issues across the area on Saturday, icy conditions will persist in untreated areas on Sunday as falling temperatures and gusty winds will make for a frigid day.
While temperatures started out in the 20s and 30s across the area, readings are expected to fall throughout the day after a cold front swept through the region.
Temperatures will eventually drop into the teens, with clearing skies expected in the afternoon. Gusty winds of up to 30-to-35 miles per hour are expected to plunge wind chills below zero in many locations.
According to the National Weather Service, icy conditions will linger on untreated surfaces, and slick spots could remain on area roadways, so residents are urged to use caution when traveling.
