Watch out for slick conditions on area roadways this morning.
Rain transitioned to snow during the overnight hours, and that’s left treacherous conditions on some Wayne County roads this morning.
North Carolina Emergency Management Director Mike Sprayberry gave an update as the state was preparing for the winter storm on Wednesday.
Since the precipitation changed over to snow, NCDOT crews did not brine roadways since the rain would just wash the salt solution away.
However, NCDOT crews are ready to clear roads and spread salt and sand where needed.
Sprayberry says staying off the roads will allow the NCDOT to quickly clear snow and ice-covered roadways.
