UPDATE: Roads may be slick for Wednesday morning commute

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- Give yourself some extra time to get to work on Wednesday -- snow could make driving a little slower than normal and low morning temperatures mean roads can't be salted.
 
According to the Madison Streets Department, it's too cold for salt to be effective. Crews will be sanding the roads until the temperature reaches at least 15 degrees. 
 
Plows will focus on 32 main routes; main arterials, main connector streets, Madison Metro Bus Routes, and streets around schools and hospitals. The Streets Department says they'll also sand hills, intersections and curves on residential streets throughout the day.
 
Numerous accidents were already announced on Twitter early Wednesday morning. State officials ask drivers to just take it slow while behind the wheel.

MADISON (WKOW) -- Give yourself some extra time to get to work on Wednesday -- snow could make driving a little slower than normal.

27 Storm Track Chief Meteorologist Bob Lindmeier says our viewing area will receive about one to three inches of snow. He says the snow will be widespread by around 6 a.m. and will diminish around noon.

Areas near the Illinois border will see the most snow, with about three inches predicted in places like Janesville and Monroe. Our northern counties will receive closer to one inch. Madison is expected to get about 1.5 inches.

After the snow is done falling, it will be cloudy and cold with a high around 13 degrees.
