Over the weekend, winds in excess of 60 miles per hour battered the region, leaving thousands without power. To start the work week this morning, freezing drizzle is expected to glaze some roadways. The conditions have prompted the National Weather Service to issue a Winter Weather Advisory until 10 a.m.
