VDOT Warns Drivers to Expect Possible Icy Roads

The Virginia Department of Transportation is advising drivers to expect possible icy and slick road conditions due to a wintry mix of precipitation of snow, freezing rain, sleet and rain that is anticipated to pass through southwestern Virginia Monday. Due to low pavement temperatures, ice accumulation is possible particularly in the higher elevations.  Icing may occur first on bridges, overpasses, ramps and shaded areas. Air temperatures are expected to rise throughout the day, but pavement temperatures will be slow to rise, contributing to the possibility of icy roads. If If temperatures rise today, VDOT crews will pre-treat roads ahead of this storm as it is expected to start as snow and transition to freezing rain.
