(WTVA) - Some drivers could encounter slick spots on bridges and overpasses early Wednesday due to freezing rain and sleet.

The WTVA Severe Weather Authority says that frozen precipitation could fall on and along Highway 82 before sunrise and could cause minor problems into the middle of the morning.

It could also fall in places like Tupelo, Coffeeville, Amory, Aberdeen, Houston, Fulton and Calhoun City as well as Sulligent, Vernon and Hamilton in Alabama.

Meteorologist John Dolusic adds this is not expected to be a widespread issue and any icy patches that develop should be gone by noon.
