The Black Hills woke up to an icy fog that brought freezing rain to the area, making roads shiny against headlights and slick against tires.
"They're pretty good so far, but it's starting to cool down and I think it's going to start getting a little icy," driver Arvid Amdahl said.
"It's going to be solid black ice. It's pretty bad," driver Matt Beamon said.
While some drivers realized too late that the conditions were getting dangerous, others used precaution on the wet pavement.
"A little bit, maybe. I dropped my speed down a little bit, I don't want to slide off into a ditch," driver John Summers said.
Drivers we spoke with say with the moisture sticking to the roads like it is, add a little snow and travel will be nearly impossible Saturday.
"It's been freezing rain, and that rain is freezing and the snow will get on top of it and you won't know that it's black ice underneath the snow," Beamon said.
"It's going to be tough. Probably shut the interstate down, if that happens," Summers said.
And even if that doesn't happen, they expect fewer vehicles trying to brave the conditions this weekend.
"Not much travel. People should stay home and let this thing get out of here," Amdahl said.
