A Level 1 means that roadways are hazardous because of accumulated snow or ice and may become slippery in spots. You are asked to drive cautiously.

Residents are asked not to call the sheriff’s office to make general inquiries about road conditions because the dispatch center is busy, the sheriff said.

Residents are also asked not call the sheriff’s office to ask whether you should report to your workplace. That is between you and your employers, the sheriff said.

We will update this developing report as warranted.
