Weather Service warns of slick roads as freezing rain hits area

posted by Howard B. Owens in weather.

The National Weather Service reports that precipitation has changed from snow to freezing rain, making untreated roads especially slick.

More reports are coming in of cars off the roadway and a school bus having a hard time getting up Molasses Hill Road, Bethany.

Ice accumulations of several hundredths of an inch up to a tenth of an inch are expected before temperatures rise above freezing.

A winter weather advisory is in effect until 1 p.m.

The weather service warns, "use extreme caution as road conditions may deteriorate rapidly and become icy with little warning."
