A trace of snow overnight left roadways a bit slippery, but drivers appeared to be handling the conditions well this morning.

One two-car accident was reported at 37th Avenue and Pittsburg Street, but drivers elsewhere were getting to their destinations.

Forecasters said the risk of precipitation has mostly ended this morning. There is only a 20 percent chance of snow or freezing drizzle.

The 8 a.m. temperature was 27 degrees. Today’s high could reach 34.

That comes after more than a week of arctic cold that brought temperatures in the single digits.

The next chance of precipitation arrives on Saturday morning. Forecasters are calling for a 50 percent chance of snow or rain before 10 a.m. The high Saturday should reach 37.

Dry conditions are predicted for the next several days with highs in the upper 30s and lows in the upper 20s to near 30.
