EUGENE, Ore. -- Overnight temperatures will drop well below freezing, leading ODOT and other agencies to urge drivers to use extreme caution on Tuesday morning.

Any roads that are still wet, especially those in shaded areas or higher elevations will likely freeze overnight on Monday into Tuesday morning.

ODOT crews will be out on highways and state-maintained roads overnight and into the early morning laying down de-icer and sand where it's necessary.

ODOT officials also want to warn drivers that wet trees will freeze overnight and could cause limbs to break and fall.

Officials also want to warn drivers that slides will be possible tomorrow morning with those downed trees.

With those potential road hazards and likely icy conditions, officials said to be aware of wrecks that may cause traffic issues as well.

Eugene Police ask drivers to make sure your car windows and lights are clear of ice and make sure you keep your headlights on.

Be sure to tune in to KEZI 9 News this morning before you leave for work or school on Tuesday morning to get the latest road and weather conditions.

ODOT officials ask that you leave a little earlier than normal on Tuesday morning to give yourself plenty of time to get where you need to go, and when you are driving, make sure you give yourself and others around you plenty of space.
