Weather conditions are rapidly deteriorating this morning and the Brown County Sheriff is issuing a travel advisory.

In light of the incoming weather, USD 415 Hiawatha is dismissing school at noon.

He said county roads are already getting very slick as temperatures are dropping and a light rain is falling, especially areas that are snow-packed. He said roads are already treacherous. He warned drivers to take it very slow with extreme caution.

The highways were still in good condition so far, he said, but expected their conditions to deteriorate as the day progresses. Freezing rain is expected to start falling by noon with snow this afternoon.
