Racine County Sheriff's Office is warning motorists to take it easy on the roads this morning.

Officials say they responded to over a dozen vehicles in ditches overnight.

"Our office would like to remind motorists to allow extra time for travel and be cautious when encountering snow plows, law enforcement vehicles, and other emergency vehicles during this storm," said Sheriff Christopher Schmaling. "Please slow down, move over if able and be alert to their activities."

All of southeast Wisconsin is under a Winter Storm Warning until 6 p.m. Monday. Drivers can expect near blizzard conditions with wind gusts up to 35 mph at times.
