Main impacts where wintry precipitation does occur

  • Down Power Lines, Widespread Electrical Outages, Snapped Trees or Branches, and Black Ice All Possible with Heavier
  • Wintry Mix of Precipitation (Freezing Rain, Sleet or Snow).
  • The cold ground temperature causes the precipitation to freeze upon impact, thus creating ice and slick conditions, especially on elevated overpasses and bridges.
  • Black ice is feasible. Sleet and the refreezing of snow or rain water can also generate black ice, particularly Wednesday night after sundown.
  • Stranded Motorists
  • Disruption of Emergency Services
  • Even small amounts of ice and snow can cause hazardous driving conditions.

Three nights of Hard Freezes Inland and Light Freezes at the northeast Florida coast later this week
