Black ice in the forecast for Tuesday morning

Weeks after a blast of wintry weather blew into the Upstate, bringing snow, sleet and ice, weather officials expect another arctic cold front to hit the Rock Hill area, possibly covering some roads and highways with black ice.

Temperatures will continue to dip below freezing Monday night, said Larry Gabric, meteorologist with the National Weather Service. Monday afternoon rainfall was expected to taper by the early evening. Some areas saw rain mixed with sleet.

“The biggest concern is going to be black ice,” Gabric said. “We’re going to have some sort of black ice issue overnight.”

Rain accumulations will be minimal, likely less than an inch, he said.
