Madison Streets Dept. plan for Wednesday night snow


MADISON (WKOW) -- 27 Storm Track meteorologist Bob Lindmeier says another round of snow is expected Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

Below is the latest update from the Madison Streets Department:

Another day in February, another winter weather event.  The Streets Division has been on the road dealing with snow and ice 24 hours a day since January 30th so why should today be any different.

Madison is forecast to receive a mix of sleet, freezing rain and snow beginning sometime between 6 and 8 this evening.  This mix of precipitation is expected to continue throughout the night.  Depending on the actual track of the storm we could be in for mixed precipitation all night or we could see a switch to snow in the morning hours.

The Streets Division is keeping 28 crews on though the evening commute through Midnight.  Those crews will be working on our salt routes.  After Midnight we will keep 28 trucks on salt routes and add two sanders to work on hills, curves and intersections of residential streets.

We are expecting to see the mixed precipitation change over to snow just after sunrise.  The snow is expected to continue to fall throughout most of Thursday morning.  Depending on how this storm develops we may continue working on salt routes in the morning or switch to a larger plowing operation.

With the possibility of freezing rain overnight drivers are reminded to leave early, drive slow, and be on the lookout for ice, especially on bridge decks and intersections.
