The Lake Area remains in the bullseye for a significant weather event expected to begin today and later tonight before continuing into the overnight hours. Rain changing to sleet and freezing rain will likely mean hazardous travel conditions by the time most of us wake up Friday morning. With the forecast also comes some friendly advice from Sunrise Beach Fire Chief Dennis Reilly.
Reilly adds, if you must head out, at least be prepared with basic items in the case you run into travel problems. Otherwise, the chief says, enjoy some down time in front of the TV or, perhaps, playing some games if you have kids.
