Public works officials preparing for ice snow

first_imgLocal road crews are preparing to take to the streets Monday morning, should the threat of snow hold true. The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for the greater Vancouver area, beginning today and lasting through Thursday. A strong cold front will bring snow levels below 1,500 feet, with the greatest chance of snow in the lowlands expected Monday morning, according to the weather service. “We could get a little bit of snow that could make the morning commute a little dicey,” said Paul Tolleson, meteorologist for the National Weather Service.Both Vancouver and county public works officials are keeping a close eye on the forecast and making sure that everything runs smoothly should the weather result in slick road conditions. De-icing equipment has been mounted on Vancouver Public Works trucks, and crews will be prepared to hit the streets for a preemptive strike at 4 a.m. Monday, the city agency said.last_img
