Light snow could affect morning commute

The Madison Streets division says it will have 30 crews out on city roads to try and keep the light snow falling in southern Wisconsin from causing problems during the morning commute.

People coming into work Wednesday morning will have to contend with light snow falling around southern Wisconsin that may slow down their commute.

Madison Streets Superintendent Chris Kelley said the city has called in 30 crews to work on salt routes throughout the city.

Kelley said the temperatures should be warm enough to allow salt to be effective in keeping city streets clear. He said crews will remain on salt routes as long as necessary on Wednesday.

WISC-TV meteorologist Haddie McLean said the snow should taper off by the lunch hour.

“The snow will last throughout the morning hours, but accumulations will be less than one inch,” said McLean.

Temperatures are expected to remain well below normal for the rest of the work week before getting back to normal this weekend.  For more details, turn to the weather page.
