March's parting shot? Rain, with a little snow mixed in.

Not to mention some ice.

A Tuesday night weather advisory from the National Weather Service warned of slick road conditions.

"Temperatures will fall below freezing overnight. Patchy black ice is possible on roadways that became wet from earlier precipitation," said the advisory issued at 10:24 p.m. for most of Long Island. "Please exercise caution when traveling tonight into early Wednesday."

Scattered showers mixed with wet snow and rain Tuesday evening, possibly switching briefly to all snow before clearing the area by the early hours of Wednesday morning, said Joe Pollina, meteorlogist with the weather service at Upton. The forecast was for less than an inch of snow.

"Temperatures Wednesday morning will be near freezing, so we could have some icy roads," News 12 meteorologist Rich Hoffman said, looking toward the commute.

Chance of precipitation from Tuesday through early Wednesday ranges between 70 percent and 90 percent, the service said.
