Winter Storm Headed to Our Service Area, 3 to 5 Inches of Snow, Ice Predicted Overnight
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory from 9 p.m. tonight through 6 p.m. Friday.
Snow is expected to develop this evening and continue into Friday. The snow will change over to and possibly mix with light freezing drizzle Friday morning.
The winter storm should bring 3.9 inches of snow accumulation to the service area. Ice accumulations will be less than a tenth of an inch.
If the timing of the snow accumulation holds, we should exceed the one-inch trigger and activate our snow removal service routes shortly after 1 a.m.
Based on predictions of snowfall of as much as half an inch per hour from 1 a.m. to 7 a.m., we expect to run our full snow removal routes twice, in back-to-back succession.
We will do our best to have you cleared out by Friday morning rush hour, but please give yourself plenty of time to get where you need to go: Strong winds, ice and slippery conditions, and limited visibility will make driving extremely dangerous tomorrow morning.
We will continue to monitor the weather situation and will update you as conditions warrant. Once our service routes are activated, we will notify you via email and our Greenwise Snowline (224-577-9473) will be live for the duration of the snow event.
We strongly recommend applying ice melt this afternoon: Deicing treatment will prevent ice build-up and eliminate hazardous walking environments. Our eco-friendly ice melt will also melt up to ½ inch of snow accumulation and will facilitate future ice removal.
We will be running deicing service crews this afternoon and can come out to your property for eco-friendly deicing service if you request it. The cost is $50 per bag of eco-friendly ice melt applied.
For more information or to request our eco-friendly deicing service, please call our office at (847) 866-1930.
