Jefferson Lab: Possible icy driving condition Fri. morning

Driving conditions tomorrow morning could be hazardous. The cold front moving across our area (eastern Virginia) will interact tonight and tomorrow morning with a moisture-laden front coming up from the Gulf of Mexico. Weather predictions agree that this region will see frozen or freezing precipitation tonight. Whether ground and air temperatures will enable icy surfaces to develop for the drive to work on Friday morning is hard to predict.

If weather conditions warrant, check on the Lab's status before leaving for work tomorrow morning. Always use good judgment as to safe driving. Contact your supervisor if driving conditions in your area are bad, and you feel it is unsafe for you to be on the roads.

Watch for ice and slippery spots when walking across parking lots and on walkways. Wear appropriate footwear and only walk on cleared or treated sidewalks and parking lots.

Members of JLab's Severe Weather Team will monitor conditions tonight and early tomorrow morning. If driving conditions necessitate adjusting the Lab's opening time tomorrow, the information will be distributed via the Automated Phone Notification System (ConnectGov) and posted in the locations listed below.
