Black ice could be hazardous for drivers

Posted: Updated:

West Virginia State Police say black ice could be a problem for drivers tonight and into early morning.

Standing water pooled on roads could freeze overnight and they ask folks to be careful when driving.

Troopers say rural areas and back roads could be more of a problem due to colder temperatures and water run-off from hillsides crossing roads.

They say the best advise is to slow down and keep an extra safe distance behind other drivers.
