Instructions: Be very careful if you venture outside tomorrow. Watch your first few steps in particular as your step or path may be coated with ice. In areas east of the Blue Ridge Mountains including the northwest suburbs of Washington DC, temperatures may rise above freezing in the morning, but road temperatures may remain at or below freezing which would sustain hazardous road conditions.
