Local Highway Crews plan to pre-treat area highways to prepare for a threat of freezing rain and sleet that is expected to sweep across the region in the early morning hours on Thursday.

Temperatures on Wednesday night are expected in the mid-20’s.  This wintry mix is expected to blast across the area in just a few hours. However, it has the potential to create hazardous driving conditions on the Thursday morning commute.  Motorists are advised to closely monitor the local weather forecast as this system approaches and be prepared for changing highway conditions.
