We could see up to one tenth of an inch of ice and possibly an inch of snow.<br /><br /> Highway Crews are not pre-treating roadways today because rain ahead of the snow would wash away the pre-treating chemicals. The road crews though will respond throughout the afternoon and evening as the rain changes to sleet and snow.</span></span></p> Mon, 13 Feb 2012 17:49:00 +0000 Chad Lampe 16908 at http://wkms.org
