Weather conditions could cause problems for drivers

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

While you may not have to worry about icy roads tonight, you'll want to drive with extra caution.

On Thursday night, we will not have freezing temps, but Pima County Department of Transportation did spray the roads and bridges earlier in the week.

The U.S. Forest Service announced today that some high-elevation roads on Mt. Lemmon are scheduled to be closed on Dec. 17.

The Santa Catalina Ranger District of the Coronado National Forest will temporarily close and lock gates on seasonal roads and day-use sites in the upper elevations of Mt. Lemmon due to weather-related unsafe driving conditions.  Catalina Highway, the main road up the mountain, will remain open but may close periodically due to weather-related issues.

With the moderate rainfall, DPS officers reported no weather-related accidents on Thursday night.
