At 530 AM CST: Surface observations detecting a mix of light
freezing rain, sleet and snow occurring across southeast Okaloosa
county in Florida. Radar trends indicate that this precipitation
will move east of the county by daybreak, with little to no
additional accumulations expected.

Dry conditions will follow throughout the morning, but with
temperatures well below freezing, last night`s precipitation has
quickly frozen onto roads, bridges, overpasses and other
surfaces, creating a glaze of ice. Driving conditions are
hazardous across much of the area, with a number of roads
impassable or closed. It is advised to stay off roads as
hazardous driving conditions are widespread, and will remain so
throughout the day as high temperatures struggle to reach near

In addition, very cold wind chills are occurring this morning.
The cold wind chills will cause frostbite in as little as 30
minutes to exposed skin. Expect wind chills to range from 15 above
zero to 0.
