    BROWN COUNTY (WLUK) -- Caution is advised on your commute this morning.

    Roads all around Brown County have slippery stretches. There are patches of glare ice, with several roads still snow covered.

    As of noon, Brown County officials say they've had 160 crashes reported in the previous 24 hours.


    Multiple vehicles have crashed into the median or slid off the road on I-41 between Green Bay and Appleton.

    The 511 road map shows I-43 from Green Bay to Manitowoc, I-41 from Abrams to Lomira and CR-10 from Fremont to Branch as having slippery conditions.


    Meanwhile, roads to the north and west are snow covered, with roads further to the west being ice covered.

    FOX 11's Lauren Kalil is checking on conditions this morning.

    Over the past 24 hours, the Green Bay Police Department has handled over 30 traffic accidents, none of them were serious injury or fatality accidents.

    Lauren Kalil spoke with Brad Stouf, lieutenant of traffic operations for the Green Bay Police Department. He suggests when driving, to leave enough space between the vehicle in front of you, slow down and give yourself some extra time for your commute. He says "The speed limit is there for perfect road conditions, these are not perfect road conditions."

    Looking ahead to Tuesday's Winter Storm Destiny, Stouf says the city of Green Bay can only clean up the roads so fast.

    Crews will first hit the primary roads, then the arterial roads and then the residential streets, so if you don't have to travel, stay home.

    Destiny will add to the mounting snow totals from this season.
