Snow and Ice Control Operations for the upcoming weekend of Dec. 11-12, 2020 as of Dec 11, 2020 at 10 am
Current Conditions: 42° Rain and windy.
Forecast: Windy and rain tonight mixing with snow overnight into Saturday. Possible all snow by Saturday afternoon into the evening. The range of snow totals currently is 0”-6 “. The lake water temperature is 48° and with Northeast winds, may lessen the amount of snow near the lake. Pavement temperatures are near 40° which if they hold, will help to melt much of the snow. All this is to say that we just don’t know when the rain will change to snow, how much we will get, and how much will accumulate on the pavement.
The Plan: We are monitoring weather forecasts carefully. Staff is scheduled to drive and monitor road conditions overnight. All trucks have been prepared and started to ensure they are ready to roll. All drivers and support staff have been notified of possible call outs for tonight overnight and into tomorrow as needed. If a General Ice Control ( GIC) Operations is called we will have 103 salt trucks on the road.
Covid-19 precautions have been established and are in place to provide for social distancing and limiting person to person contact during operations. Cleaning supplies and hand sanitizers are stationed for use and masks are required unless the driver is alone in their vehicle.
Parking: No impact expected.
Winter parking regulations began December 1, with no parking 2 am – 6 am on through highways and bus routes. Posted signs take precedence, such as streets posted No Parking Dec 1- Mar 1. We encourage those that park on the street to sign up for E –Notify and text messaging at milwaukee.gov/parking.
