Roads have become very slippy across the area. We have road condition links below. There are so many slippery spots that I’d run out of room writing here. As this line of precipitation moves through for the next few hours, we’ll look for a light glazing of ice on roadways. Some counties have already reported numerous accidents with roads completely covered in ice. Please drive carefully if you are out.
