The NWS reiterated at its afternoon briefing what it stated in an earlier conference that upon sunset, refreezing of cleared roads will be a likely impact and will include hazardous travel conditions, especially in shaded spots, on bridges and overpasses, or on any untreated roadways.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals encourages keeping animals indoors.
“Freezing temperatures spell extra hardship for backyard dogs who often go without adequate food, water, shelter, or veterinary care,” the organization said. “If you see animals left outside without shelter from the elements and are unable to help, note their location and alert authorities immediately.”
In cold weather, you can provide birds and other animals with access to water by filling a heavy nonmetal water bowl and breaking the surface ice twice a day.
When weather improves, be sure to remove any food offerings to encourage animals to move on to warmer areas.
