on major routes around the triangle as a hub for much of the morning commute. this is i-40 at miami boulevard. bridges and ramps. you can see here this ramp from miami boulevard onto i-40 looks wet but that likely is at least partially frozen and in many areas the ramps are completely frozen. especially where you have trees there that have shaded that ramp preventing the sun from hitting it yesterday and doing some melting. keep that in mind. on the south side of raleigh as we take a look at saunders and wilmington, it looks just fine. mostly dry conditions. secondary roads are in terrible shape especially northern part of wake county on to the north and west. likely there will be some melting today but whatever is still wet as sunshine -- sunset will refreeze tonight and we will have problems in spots for our tuesday morning commute. bill? thanks.
