... Patchy black ice to redevelop across the Piedmont of the
western Carolinas overnight...

Warm temperatures in the 50s today across the Piedmont of the
western Carolinas has produced considerable melting of the snow
on the ground. However, temperatures are expected to fall well
down into the 20s overnight and much of this liquid could refreeze
on area roadways. Patches of black ice will likely form, which
could be hard to spot. This will make roadways slippery in some
areas overnight. Temperatures will rise above freezing by about 10
am Saturday, and any lingering icy patches should quickly melt.

Use extra caution if driving in the Piedmont of western North
Carolina overnight into Saturday morning. Allow extra travel time
to reach your destination and be on the lookout for patches of
black ice.
