    Although milder weather is on the way for New York City, residents will have to contend with some icy spots late tonight and early tomorrow morning before the warmth arrives.

    Slippery conditions are expected in northeastern Pennsylvania and southern New York. Areas that can be impacted include the Poconos and Catskills along with Allentown, Pa., and Poughkeepsie and Albany, N.Y.

    Commuters in the evening should be good to go, but after midnight the roads can turn slick. In New York, temperatures will remain above freezing; however, those in the northern and western suburbs can expect some icing.

    As with many winter weather events, residents north and west of I-287 have the best chance for icy spots. In the city and to the south and east, warmer air will prevent hazardous travel although drizzle will make for a damp night.

    Some drizzle can linger Saturday morning before drier and warmer weather prevails.

    This is certainly not a widespread, ferocious storm, but sometimes these sneaky icing events can cause major headaches on the roads. Just a brief period of freezing drizzle can cause black ice and lead to accidents.
