UPDATE: VDOT will be sending out trucks to treat roads and plow if needed, said spokeswoman Kelly Hannon. The highway department trucks will head out at 8 p.m.

With a mixture of rain and snow predicted to fall, Hannon said people should avoid early-morning driving because of the possibility of black ice forming on the cold pavement.


A mixture of rain and snow could make for some messy driving Thursday night.

The National Weather Service is calling for a mixture of rain and snow, with the precipitation potentially turning into all snow late. It also will be cold (20s), so that could lead to black ice.
