Sunday's weather likely to make travel treacherous
JANESVILLE The Rock County Sheriff’s Office is urging people to avoid traveling Sunday because of a storm that’s expected to start late Sunday morning, according to a news release.
The National Weather Service in Sullivan has issued a winter weather advisory from noon to midnight Sunday.
A combination of snow, sleet and freezing rain is expected to begin late Sunday morning as part of winter storm Luna.
The snow-sleet-ice mix is expected to last through the evening. Ice accumulations of up to 0.20 inches are expected, as is a snow and sleet mix of up to 1 inch.
The weather will translate to slippery roads and limited visibility, the weather service said.
Officials at the sheriff’s office anticipate “potentially dangerous road conditions,” the news release said.
If you must travel, remember to reduce speed, wear a seatbelt, keep your cell phone charged and with you, and pack emergency supplies, the news release said.
Road conditions can be monitored at www.511wi.gov or by dialing 511 on your telephone.
