Winter weather concerns continue into tonight. Chance of icy conditions working over portions of the Suwannee River Valley this evening.

Any frozen precipitation accumulations should be minimal, since temperatures for most of the event should be just above freezing.

Some minor ice accumulation may occur on grassy areas, overpasses and bridges, especially over inland locations. Cold temperatures and wind will result in wind chill temperatures in the mid to upper 20s.

A winter weather advisory means that periods of sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibility, and use caution while driving.
