...ROADS WILL REFREEZE AGAIN TONIGHT CAUSING DANGEROUS TRAVEL  
CONDITIONS...  
 
CLEAR SKIES AND WARMER TEMPERATURES HAVE CONTINUED TO MELT SOME  
OF THE SNOW ACROSS THE MID-SOUTH.  
 
COLD OVERNIGHT TEMPERATURES WILL LEAD TO REFREEZING FOR ANY  
SURFACES THAT HAVE WET SNOW/SLUSH/OR WATER ON THEM FROM MELTING  
SNOW. COLD TEMPERATURES TONIGHT, IN THE LOWER TO MID 20S, WILL  
LEAD TO THESE SURFACES REFREEZING INTO CHUNKS OR SHEETS OF ICE  
WHICH WILL MAKE TRAVEL VERY HAZARDOUS SUNDAY MORNING. IN  
ADDITION, PATCHY FREEZING FOG MAY DEVELOP DURING THE OVERNIGHT  
HOURS. AS VISIBILITIES DROP, ICE MAY DEVELOP ON BRIDGES AND  
OVERPASSES. AS A RESULT, TRAVEL REMAINS DISCOURAGED ACROSS THE  
AREA.  
 
SNOW MELTING ON ROOFTOPS AND TALL BUILDINGS WILL LEAD TO LARGE  
ICICLE AND ICE SHEET FORMATION. AS TEMPERATURES WARM, LARGE CHUNKS  
OF ICE WITH SHARP EDGES WILL BEGIN TO FALL OFF OF ROOFTOPS AND  
TALL BUILDINGS, POTENTIALLY LEADING TO INJURY FROM ANYONE NEAR THE  
FALLING ICE.  
 
SEVERAL LAKES AND PONDS HAVE FROZEN SURFACES ACROSS THE MID-SOUTH,  
AND THESE FROZEN SURFACES WILL LIKELY REMAIN FROZEN THROUGH  
SUNDAY. IT HAS NOT BEEN COLD ENOUGH FOR THE ICE TO BE SAFE TO  
WALK ON. SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH COULD RESULT FROM ANYONE WALKING  
OUT ON THIN ICE. LAKES AND PONDS FREEZE FROM THE EDGES TO THE  
MIDDLE. YOUR WEIGHT MAY BE SUPPORTED ON THE EDGE OF THE FROZEN  
BODY OF WATER, AND NOT OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LAKE OR POND.  
AVOID WALKING OUT ON ANY FROZEN BODIES OF WATER.
