There are four precipitation types we watch for during winter.
Warm air means rain. Cold air, of 32-degrees or colder, changes things. We can see freezing rain, sleet or snow.
Sleet is treacherous to drive on, freezing rain a bigger challenge.
Black ice is a huge worry. If you hit black ice, keep the steering wheel straight, don’t hit the brakes and get out of the throttle to slow down.
Black ice isn’t black. It’s a very thin layer of ice. So thin, it’s practically transparent, making it hard to spot and and hard to stop.
So remember the black ice driving tips: keep the steering wheel straight, don’t brake and take your foot off the accelerator to slow down.
