“In the elevated area, a mix of freezing rain and sleet will develop Monday and continue into Monday night with travel becoming hazardous,” EMA officials said Monday afternoon.

While Warren County is currently below the “significant threat” area, it is located inside what the National Weather Service in Jackson calls the “elevated threat” area, meaning the likelihood of sleet and freezing rain, hazardous roadways, and downed trees and power lines remains high.
