Motorists found a thin sheet of ice on their vehicles Friday morning. The weather forced the closure of dozens of freeway ramps and overpasses were shut down due to icing.

Roads may remain icy until about noon when the weather gets above the freezing mark. Drivers are advised to use caution, especially on bridges and overpasses.

If you see snow or ice and can safely take photos or video, send them to photos@khou.com.
