Reno County Sheriff Randy Henderson called Eyewitness News Saturday morning asking viewers to stay off the roads that he says are slick and icy. Also, freezing drizzle is sticking to windshields making it tough to see. He heeds the same warning for Sunday saying "It doesn't appear that road conditions will improve much overnight with wind chills below 0 and possibility of snow accumulations. Stay home unless you absolutely need to be out."
