The Virginia Department of Transportation advises motorists to drive with extra caution tonight and into the morning. Temperatures are expected to drop this evening, creating potential for wet roads to refreeze or black ice to develop. People who are driving are urged to be careful particularly on bridges, overpasses, curves, hills and ramps.

Crews will be out treating roads as long as conditions are present.

Sunday night conditions:
– Interstate 64: Severe conditions in Augusta County. Moderate conditions in Rockbridge County.
– Interstate 81: Minor conditions in Rockbridge, Augusta and Rockingham.
– Primary roads: Severe conditions in Augusta County. Minor conditions in Rockbridge and Rockingham.
– Secondary roads: Severe conditions in Rockbridge and Augusta. Moderate conditions in Rockingham.

Motorists are reminded that ice and freezing rain conditions can still produce hazardous driving conditions, even when roads are treated. People should not drive unless absolutely necessary.
