GREEN BAY, Wis.- Treacherous conditions for drivers as those who didn't stay home are braving the elements.
"They're pretty bad. You can't see the lines, wind's blowing across, and they're pretty slippery," Elliott Ehlerd said.
In Northeast Wisconsin, fears and frustrations piling up for Ehlerd and other drivers.
"You have to take off work early just to get home in time to be safe," Ehlerd said.
"They're really slippery. None of the roads are really cleared out, just probably a couple of the main roads are clear. Other than that, all the side roads are just slush," Zach Jensen said, who lives in Green Bay.
Winds picking up are creating treacherous travel conditions.
"We had a couple of rollovers out on the I-43 corridor near the Manitowoc-Sheboygan area that's also been cleared," Lt. Tony Burrell said, with Wisconsin State Patrol.
Wisconsin State Patrol says they've also had several reports of crashes and cars going into ditches. Luckily, no one was hurt.
"It's going to be slippery go for the foreseeable evening hours, so we're not advising travel to the public at all if possible," Burrell said.
But if you do have to hit the roads, officers suggest going slow and leaving yourself extra time.
While Ehlerd has his own advice.
"Stay inside," Ehlerd said.
Officers say the less people on the roads, the easier it will be for plows to get through to clear them faster. For an update on road conditions throughout the state call 5-1-1.
