Winter Operations: Dec. 20, 2012
The National Weather Service is forecasting:
- Tonight: Cloudy. Snow showers...mainly after midnight. Areas of blowing snow after midnight. Snow accumulation an inch or less. Windy with lows in the upper 20s. Southwest winds 25 to 30 mph with gusts up to 50 mph. Chance of precipitation 80 percent.
Crews are monitoring road conditions and weather forecasts throughout the day as rain continues to fall and temperatures remain above freezing.
Heavy daytime rain is preventing crews from applying any effective pretreatment to City roadways.
Crews will begin treating roadways once conditions allow, and will continue through the overnight hours.
Making roadways as safe as possible for the morning commute is a primary concern.
What Citizens Should Expect:
Drivers should continue to be alert when driving overnight and early tomorrow, as hazardous driving conditions are likely.
Citizens will need to share the road with large salt trucks tonight. Please give operators the extra distance they need to perform their job safely!
