Drivers beware, heading out of Western North Carolina over mountain ridges will require caution because of slush and ice on the roads. As of noon Tuesday, no major highways were closed, but secondary roads have some snow on them. The snow is more like ice pellets this morning, and it's been falling all night long.Snowplows are busy keeping I-26 open through Sam's Gap in Madison County. The DOT has called in five additional salt and sand trucks from Buncombe County to help keep this interstate open. DOT engineers say they're staying ahead of the constant snowfall, but only with crews scraping and salting the roads. The good news is the temperatures at the high altitudes are slightly above freezing, so the ice is not bonding to the road. That could change at any minute, so that's why DOT is urging caution and slower speeds as they battle the slush.Follow Sherrill Barber on Twitter @SherrillBarberRelated Links:Madison County Morning SnowMany Still Without PowerPower Knocked Out for Thousands of Progress Energy Customers Widespread Power Outages Across Western North CarolinaMountain Snowfall Strong Wind Causes Tree To Fall on Dump TruckNCDOT
