[TAP TO WATCH LIVE NEWSCASTS]

Today is a First Alert Weather Day through 9 a.m. Wednesday.

The snow will end this evening with much colder temperatures moving in. Temperatures will drop into the teens after sunset and this will turn most area roads that are just wet to ice.

Even treated roads will likely turn to ice as temperatures become too cold for effective treatment. Roads will likely remain icy until the middle of the morning on Wednesday morning and the sun has a chance to work on them.
