Did you make your winter shovel or ice scraper purchase? Got gloves? You may want to get that accomplished TODAY! Current forecast data suggests that we will be dealing with snow tomorrow, Thursday November 15th, with a start time between 11am and 2pm. The snow will turn steady and even heavy at times soon after onset. It is possible that all surfaces including pavements will be covered. The snow will eventually mix or change to sleet. Sleet then changes to freezing rain late in the evening with the possibility of additional icing. Current accumulation data has a range of 2-5” of snow with ice both of which is dependent on location, elevation etc.
Madison Department of Public Works is prepared in the event snow accumulations occur in Madison. As soon as the snow removal/cleaning is completed, DPW will return to picking of leaves.
