The warning takes effect at 4 p.m. Tuesday and lasts through 6 p.m. Wednesday. Ice up to a half-inch thick can build through freezing rain overnight.

The Corbett area was already very cold and windy Tuesday morning, and only expected to get worse. Tuesday, the school district cancelled all school for the day, because of icy roads.
