Throughout the Bay Area a freeze warning is in place until 8 a.m., weather officials said as of 11 p.m. Monday night.
Clear skies and light winds have dipped temperatures to 25 through 35 degrees along the corridor between San Jose and San Francisco.

Aside from chilly weather, black ice is likely, especially on bridges and overpasses, according to the weather service. Drivers are advised to proceed with caution during the morning commute.
