It will be in effect from Sunday afternoon through late Monday night.

A combination of freezing rain, snow and sleet will likely affect the area sometime Sunday into Monday.

Hazardous travel due to icy or snow-packed roads is likely.  

Sidewalks and parking lots will be very slippery as well.  

Damage to tree limbs and power outages are possible.
