Monday night into Tuesday morning, heavy rain is expected to fall with a mix of snow and sleet. Temperatures are also expected to drop below freezing, causing dangerous conditions on the roadways.

Flashlight with extra batteries
Jumper cables
First aid kit

Emergency flares or reflectors
In addition to these tips, MDOT encourages drivers to slow down on icy roads, brake early and remember to stay distraction free from cell phones.
