City operations:  51 City and contractor crews continue plowing and applying granular salt pre-wet with brine to arterial streets, school and bus routes. Services other than emergency response may be temporarily suspended in the event that visibility becomes too poor for vehicle operators to safely perform their duties. Treatment strategies can be rendered ineffective during blizzard conditions. Additional resources are standing by for post-storm plowing and cleanup.

Weather conditions: Light snow and windy

Street conditions: Crews report streets varying from wet with slush to completely covered with blowing snow. Drivers should expect slick conditions and delays. Travel may be difficult or impossible due to decreased visibility.
