“We just don't know what's going to happen overnight. You know, the refreezing is certainly going to be a concern," Flasch said.

It's a concern drivers said they'll be looking out for.

"It might ice up because it's still really wet and it's going to be really cold," Seawright said.

Maas said, "I'm heading south, so I'm going to find out."

As for secondary streets, like main drags through neighborhoods, those roads are being overnight.

The city said it has a crew that will continue keeping up with the roads into Tuesday morning.
