As expected, the rain mixed with sleet and then became freezing rain in the late night hours producing a glaze of ice on many surfaces.  How much ice depends on your location: Hickory already had over a quarter inch in most locations including untreated roadways and was expected to get as much as another quarter inch before the temperature warmed above freezing; Lincolnton had about a tenth of an inch, two-tenths in some places; Shelby and Gastonia had a little less than a tenth of an inch in most locations.  

The treatment of major roads by the NC DOT in anticipation of the wintry weather meant that there wasn't as much on those roads--but there could still be some icy spots.  

The temperature is expected to warm to 41° by Sunday afternoon and that should melt most of the ice.  The overnight low Monday morning is expected to match Sunday's 31° and in some areas, freezing fog may develop icy spots again.  

At 5 AM Sunday, it was 32° in Lincolnton, Hickory and Shelby, 33° in Gastonia.
