Major roads are generally clear in the 10-county district which consists of the counties of Amherst, Appomattox, Buckingham, Campbell, Charlotte, Cumberland, Halifax, Nelson, Pittsylvania and Prince Edward while secondary roads still have icy spots or slush in some locations.
Motorists should anticipate some icing tonight as temperatures are forecast to drop below freezing and any moisture remaining on roadways could re-freeze.
