Late Thursday, we saw a transition of a mix of sleet, freezing rain and snow. The conditions spread toward the Interstate 40 corridor overnight into Friday morning.
On Friday morning, a winter weather advisory has been extended across the area.
The highest ice totals will be in the northwestern counties where up to 0.2 inches is expected. A glaze is possible near I-40. Gusty wind will increase stress on trees and powerlines, enhancing a power outage risk.
Temperatures won't rise much above freezing on Friday, so our areas won't have much help with melting until Saturday.
