The National Weather Service is predicting two to four inches of snow, although Highway Superintendent Jeff Hanson said his forecaster is forecasting two to six inches with snow ending around midnight. Mr. Hanson said a deviation in the storm track could change the accumulation up or down.
The light, fluffy variety of snow is coming down with varying intensity from light to heavy with temperatures at or below freezing.
Mr. Hanson called in the highway crew about 12:30 p.m. today (Saturday) and they have treated the roads. When the snow accumulates on the roads, the crew will begin to plow it off, he said. He added the crew will remain on duty as long as necessary.
As he always does, Mr. Hanson recommended people stay home “and let us take care of the roads.” The crew’s work is easier when there are the least amount of cars on the road, he said.
