ELC Winter Event #4

Around ¼ to ½" in the metro.

Around ¼ to ½” in the metro.

Final Recap

SNOW Very light snow blew around in heavy winds. Officially .5″ at MSP Airport and ¼” or so throughout the metro.

PLOW This storm was not plowable and would have used very little service.

SIDEWALKS Most of the snow gathered in turf and landscaped areas and didn’t collect on sidewalks. Very little sidewalk service – beyond a touch of salt – is necessary.

Icing and Light Snow 11/23/14

11/24/14 1 pm weather

11/24/14 1 pm weather

ICE Light rain and freezing temperatures brought a light icing event overnight. Walks and parking lots may have been salted depending on your contract.

SNOW The remainder of 11/24/14 will bring light snows totaling less than 1″ ending by midnight.

WINDS Strong Northwest winds gusting up to 35 mph will blow any accumulated snow around today.

PLOWABLE? Even though we may reach an 1″ of accumulation (probably not) this storm probably won’t be plowable other than clearing drifts.

SOUTH AND EAST If it actually snows today, there is potential with these strong winds for drifting snows on the south and east sides of buildings. This is problematic on sidewalks.
