MISSOULA — Slick roads caused by freezing drizzle are being reported across the Flathead Valley Monday evening.

The Montana Department of Transportation reports ice and black ice from McGregor Lake through Kalispell to Columbia Falls on US Highway 2.

Roads throughout Kalispell to Whitefish are also reported to be covered with black ice.

Somers to Dickey Lake on US Highway 93 also is covered with black ice.

Freezing drizzle will continue through the night, so expect roads to be slick throughout the evening into Tuesday morning.

Multiple crashes have already been reported throughout this area.

Roads across much of Western Montana are listed as "wet/scattered wet."
