Be careful on roads today (UPDATED)

TNS Regional News • Feb 2, 2014 at 4:20 PM

The National Weather Service issued a special weather statement early this morning warning drivers and pedestrians about slippery roads and sidewalks in counties including Huron and Erie counties.

The Huron County Sheriff's Office issued Level 1 snow emergency Sunday. That means roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads also may be icy. Motorists are urged to drive cautiously.

A cold front was moving across the region and as the rain changed to snow and the temperature fell below freezing, untreated roads and sidewalks were becoming slippery, the weather service reported about 1:15 a.m.

The weather service also urged drivers to watch for flooded roads. In addition to Erie and Huron counites, the statement included Hancock, Seneca, Sandusky, Lucas, Wood, and Ottawa counties as well as counties across far northeastern Ohio and into Pennsylvania.
