Despite milder weather in the forecast for later in the week, winter has more headaches in store for local drivers first.
A winter weather advisory has been issued for the 970 WMAY listening area from 6am to 6pm Monday. Sleet and freezing rain will create a glaze on roadways that is likely to make conditions difficult and hazardous for anyone on the roads. The President's Day holiday could reduce some of the normal traffic volume, but authorities still advise drivers to use extreme caution.
Ice accumulations of less than two-tenths of an inch are expected, but that could still be enough to make driving difficult, and potentially to bring down small tree limbs. Stay with 970 WMAY for updates on the forecast and road conditions, along with information on weather-related closings and cancellations.
