The storm that brought snow to the Upper Midwest and an icy mess to Kentucky and Tennessee Friday morning was pushing across North Carolina and upstate South Carolina Friday evening.
For the latest conditions and impacts from the ongoing ice storm in the South, consult the "Live Blog."
In some areas of Kentucky and Tennessee, the ice will accrued to a thickness of 0.25-.0.50 of an inch, which is enough to weigh down weak tree limbs and make roads a skating rink. Temperatures will be slow to recover during the afternoon and evening hours
People from eastern Tennessee to northeastern Georgia, upstate South Carolina, western, northern and central North Carolina and part of southern Virginia will be slipping and sliding on a glaze of ice.
Cities from Greenville, S.C. and Asheville, N.C. to Anderson, S.C. and Charlotte, Wintston-Salem and Raleigh, N.C., can expect several hours of ice to an all-out ice storm.
Roads were like a skating rink in portions of Kentucky and Tennessee for the morning drive. Multiple vehicles were sliding in ditches and there have been reports of multiple vehicle accidents.
Travel will be dangerous in these areas. It will not be until Saturday in many locations that temperatures rebound enough to melt all of the ice off roadways and sidewalks.
People are urged to exercise extreme caution even where air temperatures are a few degrees above freezing. In some cases, ice can form on colder surfaces in these conditions, such as bridges, overpasses and decks. The thin, clear ice may appear to be only wet.
On the northern fringe of the ice, across southern Virginia and along much of the North Carolina border, snow and sleet will be mixed in for a time. From Elizabeth City, N.C., to Norfolk, Va., a mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain are forecast. Although roads can still be slippery, the amount of snow and sleet may cut down on the risk of downed lines.
