I have decided to put out a No-Travel Notice for portions of the Midwest and Great Lakes in response to the ongoing ice storm and ice yet to come. The following areas are included in this notice:
-Much of Michigan
Ice continues to fall across the Midwest, especially Illinois, as a body of precipitation associated with a storm system continues to move north and east. An incoming warm front will change precipitation to all rain as the evening goes on across the Midwest, but overnight icing is likely across the central Great Lakes and portions of the Northeast. Travel is considered dangerous and potentially life-threatening in many of the highlighted areas as a result of accumulating ice. Unless you are encountering a serious emergency, travel is not advised as the ice is making roads treacherous at this time. Until the rain arrives to melt away the ice (which could take additional time), roads will continue to be very unsafe and should not be used.
