Current weather forecasts are predicting above freezing temperatures coupled with rain, snow and high winds on Saturday. These are ideal conditions for the formation of ice on the road. Throughout the weekend up to 21 sanders will be applying salt and sand on Circle Drive, priority streets and high-risk intersections to prevent icing and increase traction. However, as temperatures drop later in the day the forecasted snow with the combined effect of 40 – 70 km/h winds can contribute to icy conditions forming on the roadway between the sand/salt applications.
