Slick conditions possible after freezing temperatures overnight

Slick conditions possible after freezing temperatures overnight

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - As predicted, snow fell across the Tri-State on Wednesday.

A lot of the snow has now melted, but those wet surfaces are at risk of freezing as temperatures drop overnight, causing potentially hazardous conditions for drivers.

On Wednesday night, law enforcement officials say it’s a good idea to slow down, as well as leave plenty of space between yourself and other vehicles.

Most importantly, they stress to give yourself extra time when driving late Wednesday or early Thursday.

Black ice is the main concern for Thursday morning, especially as you pass over bridges and overpasses.

In Kentucky, the KYTC says they have been preparing western Kentucky roads to be able to handle winter weather like this.

The name of the game Thursday morning is to take it slow.
