Icy Roads Causing Treacherous Road Conditions This Morning Across Central NC

...ICY ROADS CAUSING TREACHEROUS ROAD CONDITIONS THIS MORNING...

 

MANY OF THE PLOWED ROADS HAVE LEFT BEHIND SUFFICIENT MOISTURE THAT HAS FROZEN INTO A THIN LAYER OF SEEMINGLY INVISIBLE ICE THIS MORNING AS TEMPERATURES HAVE FALLEN INTO THE UPPER 20S AND LOWER 30S. STATE OFFICIALS HAVE REPORTED NUMEROUS ACCIDENTS ACROSS THE AREA WHERE DRIVERS HAVE LOST CONTROL OF THEIR VEHICLE AS THEIR CAR ENCOUNTERS BLACK ICE DUE TO DRIVING TOO FAST...MAKING SUDDEN TURNS OR ACCELERATION.

 

IT IS STRONGLY ADVISED TO DELAY TRAVEL THIS MORNING UNTIL TEMPERATURES RISE ABOVE FREEZING. HOWEVER IF YOU MUST VENTURE OUT THIS MORNING...DRIVE SLOWLY USING EXTRA CAUTION ON BRIDGES AND OVERPASSES...STEEP HILLS...AND TRAFFIC INTERSECTIONS. IF YOU ARE INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT ON AN ICY ROAD...STAY INSIDE YOUR CAR AND CONTACT AUTHORITIES FOR ASSISTANCE.

 

A "WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY" IS IN EFECT UNTIL 10 AM FOR BLACK ICE CONDITIONS.
