FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued through 10 p.m. for the entire viewing area due to freezing drizzle. Freezing drizzle will likely mix with snow and/or sleet into the early evening hours.

Icy roads will likely continue as air temperatures remain at or below freezing, while roads will remain colder. Travel will be made extremely difficult and dangerous in any icy conditions. Roads that are not treated will remain icy through tomorrow morning.

If you are traveling today, exercise extreme caution especially in any neighborhood. Give cars in front of you plenty of space and plan on more time to get to your destination. If you can, consider delaying travel until salt and sand trucks are able to treat roads. ABC21 will have live coverage of the freezing drizzle through the night at 5, 6, and 11PM.
