Roads improved slightly Friday afternoon before more freezing rain

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - Drivers who made their way out early on Friday found that the roads were a little bit on the slick side, but as the day progressed the road conditions improved.


Wesley Poore of Paragould said that while the main roads look better, some of the side roads still have slick spots.

"Beginning of the week it was pretty bad, but now all of the main roads are clear, like our back road we live on Brookside, it's still pretty slick there," Poore said. "The main roads pretty much, they got them pretty clear here in Paragould."

The roads remained in good condition throughout Friday afternoon, but around sunset more freezing precipitation made it's way through the area and left a glaze on the roadway that will stick around until temperatures rise above freezing Saturday.
