Despite the wide and varying snow reports, we're still seeing slick and icy streets through most of the region. We'll stay cold and cloudy for the first half of the day with brighter skies returning through the afternoon. We'll see lighter winds overnight with clearing skies, allowing for temperatures to fall back into the teens and a few single digits.
