[December 18, 2008]  An ice storm warning for significant icing remains in effect from 3 p.m. Thursday to noon Friday.

Freezing rain is expected to develop across the area from the Southwest late Thursday afternoon and continue into Friday morning. Significant icing will be likely, with ice accumulations of one-quarter to one-half inch and locally higher amounts possible on all exposed surfaces. Temperatures are expected to rise above 32 degrees around midday Friday, which will change the freezing rain to all rain.

An ice storm warning means severe winter weather conditions are expected or occurring. Significant amounts of ice accumulations will make travel dangerous or impossible. Travel is strongly discouraged. Commerce will likely be severely affected. If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency. Ice accumulations and winds will likely lead to snapped power lines and falling tree branches that add to the danger.
