…A FEW SLICK SPOTS POSSIBLE EARLY THIS MORNING…

A FEW PERIODS OF LIGHT FREEZING RAIN OR LIGHT SLEET MAY OCCUR EARLY THIS MORNING…AREA WIDE INITIALLY AND THEN RELEGATED TO SOUTHEAST PORTIONS OF THE STATE BY DAYBREAK. AMOUNTS WILL BE QUITE LIGHT…NOT WIDESPREAD…AND TRANSIENT WHERE IT OCCURS LASTING LESS THAN 30 MINUTES. HOWEVER WITH ROAD TEMPERATURES IN THE TEENS AND 20S EVEN THIS BRIEF VERY LIGHT PRECIPITATION MAY PRODUCE SCATTERED SLICK SPOTS.

MOTORISTS SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR ROAD CONDITIONS CHANGING QUICKLY OVER SHORT DISTANCES EARLY THIS MORNING. SLOW DOWN AND DRIVE CAUTIOUSLY AND DEFENSIVELY.
