BOSTON — Major roads in Massachusetts have been cleared of snow that fell during a weekend storm, but officials warn that there's still plenty of ice that could make driving slippery.

Massachusetts Department of Transportation crews were treating roads all weekend, but Monday's bitter cold means there will be icy spots.

Transportation officials are advising motorists to drive cautiously and be aware that there could be black ice on the roads.

The MBTA was up and running Sunday night, and officials say it should be OK for the morning commute.

Parking bans or restrictions are still in effect in some communities on Monday, including South Hadley and Holyoke in Western Massachusetts.

Some residents of Springfield lost power Sunday night, but it was restored after about two hours.
