MADISON, Wis. - The Madison Streets Division said it will start plowing all residential streets after 3 p.m. Monday using only city of Madison vehicles and staff.
Streets Superintendent Chris Kelley said city crews have been working on salt routes since the snow began to fall Monday morning and will continue on the salt routes until the snowfall stops.
He said the city anticipates having up to 80 pieces of equipment working on the residential streets overnight.
Kelley said the city won't bring in private contractors for this storm. He said it will take the city longer than usual as it will be doing the work internally, but he anticipates having almost all residential streets plowed in time for the Tuesday morning rush hour.
A winter weather advisory is in effect until 1 a.m. Tuesday for Vernon, Juneau, Adams, Crawford, Richland and Grant counties.
WISC-TV meteorologist Karin Swanson said 1-4 inches of accumulation is possible Monday, with the heaviest snow north of Madison.
Skies are expected to clear during the day on Tuesday. Temperatures will remain cold and climb into the lower 30s on Friday.
Spring begins Wednesday at 6:02 a.m., but it will be very cold that day with high temperatures 20 to 25 degrees below normal.
