The National Weather Service in Charleston has issued a special weather statement for our area:

Black ice will affect our area and surrounding counties. Temperatures are cold enough that water on untreated roadways will freeze. This will create patches of black ice. In addition, snow showers will also stick to untreated roadways.

Motorists should use extreme caution and be prepared for ice on roads. Please use extreme caution, especially on bridges, overpasses and around curves. Allow plenty of stopping distance and avoid braking suddenly.
