It will be cold Christmas Eve across the state and potentially hazardous road conditions could greet some drivers. State Patrol Sergeant Jesse Grabow says if you have to go somewhere, make sure to top off that tank.

“Always remind people that half tank rule. In the winter try to not let that vehicle get below half a tank. because if you find yourself stranded you’re going to want to keep that vehicle running as long as possible to stay warm and safe.”

Gusty wind early in the day could make visibility difficult in areas that saw significant snowfall yesterday. Grabow says always be sure to pack your winter preparedness kit including extra warm clothes, food, and water.
