Howard said in the South, drivers need to know how to slow down when the snow comes.

"You’ve got trees you can hit. It’s very dangerous, once your car is sliding, you cannot stop it," he said.

Howard is advising all drivers to get fuel early just in case an accident happens and add blankets to their vehicles to keep warm while waiting for help.
