We can't catch a break with the weather. On the heels of a snowstorm and bitterly cold temperatures, freezing rain is the next threat.

The National Weather Service has issued a Freezing Rain Advisory for the State College area and most of central Pennsylvania.

Accumulations may range from a glaze to a light coating of ice. "It's not going to be heavy rain," says AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Tom Kines. "It will be very light and probably spotty in nature. But it only takes a little bit of a glaze to cause travel problems."

Freezing rain is possible from Sunday morning through the afternoon.

Slippery, icy conditions could make travel on untreated roads treacherous. Use caution when driving, especially on bridges and overpasses.

The Freezing Rain Advisory will remain in effect from 8 a.m. Sunday until 5 p.m.
