ice and slippery roadways
Power company trucks are in Vicksburg in anticipation of downed power lines.

The temperature has just dropped to 32 and there is a light mist falling in parts of Warren County. This is creating a situation where the roadways are becoming slippery.

Bridges and overpasses will be the first to freeze over. Please use great caution if you have to travel.

If you don’t have to travel please stay in and stay off the roads. Law enforcement and first responders will be challenged to safely reach accident scenes when the roadways are slippery.

Temperatures will stay near freezing all night long with intermittent periods of rainfall and mist overnight. If you do not have to travel it is advised that you stay inside.

A winter weather advisory is in effect for the Warren County area. There is a strong possibility of freezing rain and dangerous driving conditions overnight. Freezing rain can also cause tree branches to fall along with downing power lines.
