NWS Warns of Slick Conditions Again This Evening

winter traffic_alert_300WESTERN Ky. (1/16/2013) – The following Special Weather Statement from the National Weather Service in Paducah warns area drivers to remain cautious this evening, as residual icy road conditions may again pose hazards:

SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT

…SLICK ROADWAYS MAY CONTINUE…

DESPITE AN END TO PRECIPITATION...SLICK SPOTS ON AREA ROADWAYS COULD CONTINUE TO POSE A TRAVEL HAZARD THROUGH TONIGHT. IT IS LIKELY THAT MAIN THOROUGHFARES ARE ALREADY CLEAR...BUT SECONDARY ROADS...ELEVATED ROADTOPS...AND ESPECIALLY BRIDGES AND OVERPASSES MAY CONTINUE TO HAVE A SLICK PATCH OR TWO. IN ADDITION...ANY POOLED MOISTURE NOT EVAPORATED WILL QUICKLY REFREEZE THIS EVENING.

IF TRAVELING...ALLOW YOURSELF EXTRA TIME TO REACH YOUR DESTINATION...AND DRIVE SLOWLY AND CAUTIOUSLY. ANY ROAD SURFACE THAT APPEARS TO BE WET MAY ACTUALLY CONTAIN A THIN LAYER OF ICE. BE ESPECIALLY CAREFUL WHEN TAKING EXIT RAMPS AND OTHER CURVES OR BENDS IN THE ROADWAY WHICH MAY POOL MOISTURE ON A ROADTOP SURFACE AND CREATE A SLICK PATCH THAT IS DANGEROUS TO DRIVERS. BE MINDFUL TO ALLOW YOURSELF A LITTLE EXTRA ROOM AND TIME TO BRAKE WHEN APPROACHING STOPS AND OTHER VEHICLES AS WELL.
