Storm Starts As Mixed Bag

Susan Bush
12:00AM / Monday, January 15, 2007

Ice is coating numerous outdoor surfaces this morning.
Drivers may find themselves traveling on wet roads one moment and on ice-slicked highways the next, thanks to a winter storm that is bringing a mix of rain and freezing rain to the region.

Police in North Adams reported rain and wet roads at about 6:14 a.m. while in Williamstown, police reported that town highway crews were at work and bridges were becoming icy.

At higher elevations of Pownal,Vt., and Vermont's towns of Stamford and Readsboro, freezing rain coated most surfaces - trees, cars, exterior steps, roadways - throughout the pre-sunrise hours and numerous roads were dangerously slick.

In Adams, police reported at about 6 a.m. that road condiitions were not dangerous.

Trooper Michael O'Neil of the Massachusetts State Police barracks in Cheshire said that he believed state highway crews were out along Routes 8, 116, 8A and 2. Higher elevations were impacted with icing conditions, he said, and he noted that ice was beginning to coat surfaces in the area of the Route 8 barracks.

"I'm looking out at my car right now and it's icing up on the roof," he said.

Drivers should use caution while driving and be aware that icing conditions could develop suddenly along roadways.

The storm is expected to continue throughout the day, and any locale with temperatures that remain under 32 degrees Fahrenheit is likely to experience moderate to heavy icing conditions.
