STORM WATCH: Wintry weather overnight leads to potentially dangerous Friday morning commute
Snow and ice during the overnight hours will cause potential problems on the state’s roadways Friday morning.
Storm Watch Team Meteorologist Dave Curren says the ice will be the major concern with this storm. He says that there should not be much snow accumulation, but that the ice and sleet will make any untreated roads or walkways particularly dangerous.
The precipitation will last into Friday morning. Overnight lows will be around 30 degrees.
