Five cars had hydroplaned on Interstate 10 in South Mississippi by mid-afternoon Thursday and became stuck in the median, the Mississippi Highway Patrol reports.

The accidents had occurred by about 2:30 p.m.

State troopers are urging motorists to drive cautiously this Christmas Eve.

Rain, which backed off earlier in the day, is expected to return this evening.

Fog also is expected to be another reason for motorists to slow down and take their time.
