Winter storm and freeze warning in effect until 6 a.m. Thursday for Suwannee and Hamilton

Live Oak — The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning and a freeze warning for Suwannee and Hamilton counties until 6 a.m. Thursday. The main impact will be freezing rain and sleet that will produce light ice accumulations, which could result in dangerous driving conditions on icy roads and bridges.

Other possible impacts are damage to trees and power lines, along with power outages. Cold temperatures and wind will result in wind chill temperatures in the lower 20s.

A winter storm warning means significant amounts of sleet and ice are expected. Travel is likely to be severely impacted. Rain may mix with sleet and freezing rain tonight along the I-10 corridor of Northeast Florida with some ice accumulation possible across the Suwannee Valley.

A freeze warning is also in effect from midnight tonight to 9 a.m.Thursday. Temperatures will be in the upper 20s to around 30, with 6 to 10 hours of sub-freezing temperatures expected.

A freeze warning means sub-freezing temperatures are imminent or expected for at least 2 hours. Appropriate action should be taken to ensure tender vegetation and outdoor pets have adequate protection from the cold temperatures. Young children, the elderly and the homeless are especially vulnerable to the cold. Take measures to protect them.
