According to meteorologist Matt Brickman, icy conditions occurred after freezing rain fell overnight. The good thing, however, is that temperatures are mostly over 32 degrees, so the ice should melt.

But cold weather is returning Tuesday. Cold air and howling winds will make it feel progressively colder through the day.
