BIG COUNTRY, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – The National Weather Service shared on social media that there is a chance of black ice, ice storms and snow for the next few days.

According to the National Weather Service Facebook post, black ice is difficult to see and makes the road very slippery, especially bridges and overpasses. The service advised that if you see wet areas on the road, take it slow, as it could be ice.

Ice storms may also arrive and the weather service has shared some tips for preparation:

  • Trim weak branches from trees around your house/vehicle
  • Do not leave windshield wipers raised
  • Have a week’s worth of food, drinks and prescriptions
  • Avoid parking under trees
  • Charge devices
