Icy roads are not over just yet for Vermont and New York.
Parts of each state can expect freezing rain starting 4 p.m. Thursday until 7 a.m. Friday, according to a winter weather advisory issued by the National Weather Service early Thursday morning.
Total ice accumulations are expected to reach one-tenth of an inch. Vermonters living east of the Green Mountains will be impacted.
Cities to be affected in Vermont include Bradford, Montpelier, St. Johnsbury, Stowe and White River Junction.
Factor in slippery roads and hazardous conditions for your commute Thursday evening and Friday morning. The National Weather Service urged people to slow down and factor in extra time for your commute.
Safety in icy conditions
Remember some important driving tips from the National Weather Service so you can avoid accidents on your commute. These include:
- Making sure your car is ready for the road (tires, wipers, coolant, etc. are all in good shape)
- Clearing off your car (including headlights, back-up cameras)
- Keeping a winter supply kit (blankets, first-aid kit, non-perishable food, etc.)
- Checking the forecast ahead of your commute
- Staying alert while on the road
- Driving slower than you typically would
- Keeping a safe distance from other cars
- Pulling off the road in the event of an accident and distinguishing yourself (using flashlights, flares, hazard lights, etc.)
