National Weather Service Issues Ice & Sleet Warning For Bangor Area
A "light glaze" is good on a cooked ham or a donut, but not so much on the road that you drive on.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for our area until 6 a.m. Friday. Depending on the temperature, which is expected to dip to 29 degrees in Bangor and then rise to 46 degrees by Friday afternoon when rain will turn into showers, the morning commute could be slippery on roads and highways like Interstate 95, Routes 1A, 202, and 15, and of course on the side streets of Bangor, Brewer, Old Town, Orono, Bucksport and Ellsworth.
