A freezing rain advisory means that periods of freezing rain or freezing drizzle will cause travel difficulties.

The City of Charlottesville issued a press release saying its road crews are ready for whatever falls from the skies. “If the weather produces ice as currently predicted, we would like citizens to limit travel if at all possible and clean ice and snow off their cars before traveling ,” said Ric Barrick, the Director of Communications for the City. “We take every storm very seriously. As with the storm last week, we are likely to see a period where some of the secondary roads will become ice covered before crews have a chance to treat them.”

Check back with this site regularly for updates on the storm and for any closings and delays.
