...LOCALLY HAZARDOUS ROAD CONDITIONS THIS MORNING...

PATCHY LIGHT TO MODERATE SNOW CONTINUES TO FALL ACROSS MUCH OF
CENTRAL NORTH CAROLINA THIS MORNING. SNOWFALL AMOUNTS ARE EXPECTED
TO AVERAGE ONLY AROUND 1 INCH ACROSS THE AREA. HOWEVER...WITH
SURFACE TEMPERATURES IN THE LOWER TO MID 20S...EVEN A LIGHT COATING
OF SNOW ON THE ROADS WILL RESULT IN VERY SLICK AND TREACHEROUS
TRAVEL CONDITIONS....ESPECIALLY WHEN THERE IS HEAVY TRAFFIC ON AREA
ROADWAYS.

MOTORISTS ARE URGED TO AVOID TRAVEL TODAY IF POSSIBLE.  ROAD
CONDITIONS WILL BE HIGHLY VARIABLE AND CAN QUICKLY CHANGE FROM GOOD
TO TREACHEROUS OVER A SHORT DISTANCE OR SHORT TIME.  IF YOU MUST
TRAVEL TODAY...GIVE YOURSELF EXTRA TIME TO REACH YOUR DESTINATION.
SLOW DOWN! MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A TRAVEL SAFETY KIT IN YOUR CAR IN
CASE YOU SLIDE OFF THE ROAD OR GET STUCK.
