5:32 am
a couple of high clouds. lunchtime 20 degrees warmer mid 40's. this afternoon we top 50 under mostly sunny skies. we will talk about the warmer temperatures in a bit but time for weather and traffic. amber rupinta is off so we are seeing a couple of incidents coming in to the traffic center. we have one lane blocked on 540 due to a stalled vehicle eastbound exit 14 falls of neuse. we have a couple of incidents with an accident on 401 and main up to the north and east of 540 and we have another incident inside the 440 beltline on atlantic avenue at whitaker mill. accidents showing up because we have reports of black ice across the region. we will talk about that and check travel times in a couple of minutes. barbara: a lot of main roads really good shape.
5:33 am
we have black ice for people contending with that. small patches can cause big problems. ed crump is live in breaking news one searching for trouble spots in raleigh and found a few, right? ed: we have. we have definitely found a spot here. we were not sure what we had to start with. look outside. we are looking at atlantic avenue close to the intersection of whitaker mill road. a guy says -- you will see him cross in front of the car -- the driver of this vehicle, he had his car crash and air bag deployed. as he was coming south on atlantic toward capital boulevard he hit a patch of black ice and it looks like there is a patch of black ice there. he spun out and hit the guard rail on the opposite side of the police car.
5:34 am
the car as the other driver goes by. it is badly damaged. the air bag deployed and looks like was slightly injured but he said he will be ok. i'm not sure what police will decide but it looks like back to the left there is a patch of black ice on i don't know if it would have caused this much damage. so there is a perfect example of why you should probably wait until after the sun is up if you can wait an hour or so probably a lot of the black ice not in shaded areas will be gone. again i can't caution people enough, anthony and barbara, for them to take it easy this morning. we need another good day of melt before we are out of the woods on this. barbara: ed crump, thank you. let's check the conditions on the western part of the triangle. anthony: gloria rodriguez in breaking news one on the streets of durham.
5:35 am
gloria: we are seeing a lot of snow and ice still on the roads. we are around the area of buxton street in durham and you can see just that leftover snow still on the road, also ice. and of course we did get some sun yesterday that melted a lot of snow but the leftover snow in some cases refroze because of cold conditions and that can create that black ice that we are also seeing in some parts of our area. so, this side road that you are seeing is what a lot of the smaller roads here in durham county look like today. that is why the schools are coasted. ed klose ed closed. we are going very slow right now. we are going about 10 miles an hour and it looks like we are
5:36 am
the camera distortion is. but we are going very slow and you see how bumpy and difficult it is to drive on some of the roads. we want to urge you if you are driving to work today as ed said it is good to wait until after the sun is up and hopefully you will see some of it melt. be very careful. the black ice can be deceiving. it looks like a slick road but you can start to slide and skid around. so be careful. we will stay out here and continue to monitor the roads for you. we are getting reports about similar situations and worse situations in other parts of durham county so we are heading to another neighborhood where we are hearing reports of a lot of ice on the roads. we will see you in the next half hour from there. back to you.
