Caution, slippery roads tonight

posted by Howard B. Owens in weather, accidents.

From the National Weather Service:

Areas of wet snow this evening have at least partially melted on road surfaces...and for those roadways that remain untreated...This will lead to some black ice as temperatures settle below freezing. At higher elevations...untreated roads will be snow or slush covered. This will especially be the case for the higher terrain south of Buffalo where several inches of snow has fallen since 4 p.m. Motorists should allow extra time to reach their destinations and pedestrians should use extra caution if walking over untreated pavement.

The Sheriff's Office is working a property damage accident that is actually two accidents in one location, involving a pole with power lines. I don't have the location. A tow truck is delayed getting there because it's pulling a car out of a ditch in the Town of Batavia. There was also a property damage accident in the city (hit-and-run).
