BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The winter weather that moved through much of the state Saturday is finally out of the area, however, there is still a cause for concern of slick spots on the roads.

Meteorologist Chelsea Ingram says that weather will improve overnight and into the morning, but there will be slick spots on the roads, mainly north and west of Baltimore City.

Highway officials caution that on average, more than 200,000 crashes occur statewide every year due to unsafe driving in snow, ice and other wet conditions.

In winter weather, motorists are reminded to drive slowly for conditions and leave space between their vehicle and others.
