The light freezing, freezing drizzle and light sleet across the
four state region early today has resulted in numerous vehicle
accidents due to a thin layer of ice, especially on back roads,
roads not treated, and even some of the main roads across the
area. Also, many untreated parking lots, driveways, sidewalks and
other surfaces are very dangerous to walk on.

DO NOT TRAVEL unless you absolutely have to. More freezing rain,
freezing drizzle and sleet are on the way. The precipitation
should pick up by afternoon.

An Ice Storm Warning continues across portions of southeast
Missouri, the southern tip of Illinois and much of western
Kentucky, with a Winter Weather Advisory north across the rest of
southern Illinois and southwest Indiana.
