12/25/2020: MELTED SNOW AND SLUSH ACROSS AREA ROADS WILL CAUSE SLICK ROAD CONDITIONS TONIGHT, USE CAUTION IF YOU TRAVEL

12/25/202, SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT: Melted snowfall and slush across many area roadways will quickly refreeze this evening and overnight. This will result in areas of slick and icy roadways for much of the area, especially on any untreated and secondary roads. In addition, periods of light snowfall this evening will reduce visibility at times making traveling even more treacherous.

The slick and icy areas will be hard to see, so exercise extreme caution if you must travel tonight. If traveling, slow down and allow extra driving distance between you and other vehicles.
