The humidity in Saskatoon this morning is very high at 95%. When it’s below zero, the moisture in the air crystallizes onto the cold pavement and turns to ice. We have 14 sanders spreading straight salt to break up the ice on our priority streets. As the sun rises, it should soften any ice and dry up the driving lanes.

Friday night’s snowfall covered Saskatoon with approximately 7 centimetres of snow. City crews have worked through the night clearing snow on Priority 1 streets such as Circle Drive, 22nd Street, Idylwyld Drive, College Drive and 8th Street. Grading continues on the remaining Priority street network.

The extreme cold, combined with this new moisture may cause icing on bridge decks, freeway ramps, overpasses and high-traffic intersections. Crews are sanding; however, salt is not effective at these low temperatures and sand is not sticking to the road.
