CLEVELAND — The snowstorm is over and the sun is out. With temperatures above freezing for the next several days, you can expect to hear the drip, drip, drip of melting snow. But this melting could bring another hazard to your travel day if you aren't careful: Ice!

Each night through the weekend, temperatures will drop below freezing. This will allow any snow melt of puddles on sidewalks, driveways, parking lots and roadways to refreeze just in time for your morning commute. Icy spots that may be difficult to see as you commute.

"Slip and falls" are a common winter injury that can keep you on the sidelines for days or even weeks. So, be cautious for the next few mornings...unless you've got a great pair of ice skates!
