Winter Weather Advisory…Very Slippery Roads!
Roads in and around Bismarck Mandan are very slick. A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for our area until 1pm today. Kind of ironic, since it's the first day of spring. Freezing rain is coming to the point where it's difficult to keep your windshield from icing over even on continuous speed. Please slow down and allow yourself a lot of extra time this morning.
Here's the latest from the National Weather Service:
