FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Tuesday may have felt relatively pleasant in Fairfield County compared to last week, with temperatures warming to near 40, but a drop in temperature after sunset tonight will result in icy conditions on roads and walkways.

Temperatures will drop to below freezing after the sun goes down, and by 6 to 7 p.m., temperatures will start falling into the 20s. Standing water from snow that has melted will refreeze, resulting in icy conditions on untreated walkways, sidewalks, parking lots and roads.

Use extra caution if you're out Tuesday evening, and clear away slush and standing water this afternoon, if possible.

Overnight lows are expected to be in the teens and lower 20s. Temperatures will warm back up again to a high near 34 during the day on Wednesday.
