Christmas Weather 

Melting snow is creating some messy conditions for drivers as the temperatures climb to unseasonable highs.

State police trooper Joshua d’Angelo says motorists need to be careful and plan on extra drive time.

Heavier traffic and wet conditions could could spell trouble for some drivers if they’re not cautious: what may look like a wet road could be frozen, and very slick.

Another concern for state police, people having too good of a time during the holiday.

Trooper d’Angelo says drinking and driving is always a concern this time of year. His suggestion: designate a driver.

State police will have a stronger presence on the roads during the holiday, to make sure everyone gets to where they’re going safely.
