Winter Weather Advisory Up for Some Freezing Rain

CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for freezing rain through 12 Noon for all area counties including Stark.

There are advisories across much of Ohio as well as Indiana and Pennsylvania.

Roads and sidewalks can be icy and dangerous from an accumulation of freezing rain, perhaps up to a tenth of an inch in Stark, Summit, Portage and Wayne Counties, says the National Weather Service.

Give yourself extra time this morning.

The weather service says because of the bitter cold weather last week that has surface temperatures below freezing, roads can ice up even if the air temperature is above 32.

They also say power outages are possible from accumulating ice on tree branches and power lines.
