Windsor roads are 'sloppy but not treacherous' after snowfall, city says
Windsor city crews were out all day salting roads that it said Friday afternoon were "sloppy but not treacherous."
And Environment Canada is now calling for only a 40 per cent chance of flurries Friday night.
Phong Nguy, the city's manager of operations, said Friday afternoon that crews have been out salting the roads.
"We will repeat the process to make sure the road is safe and passable for all the motorists," Nguy said in a video posted to social media.
Nguy said the fairly warm temperatures Friday melted the snow on contact. He said crews will stay on top of the job Friday evening in case moisture on the roads freezes again.
Environment Canada was anticipating as much as 15 centimetres of snow for Windsor-Essex Friday. The heaviest snowfall was in the morning, and it tapered off by late afternoon.
Friday night will see a 40 per cent chance of more flurries and a low of -2 C. The wind chill will be -7 C.
Here's the forecast for the rest of the weekend:
Saturday: Cloudy with a 40 per cent chance of flurries in the morning. High of 1 C.
Saturday night: Cloudy with a low of -5 C.
Sunday: Cloudy with a 40 percent chance of flurries. High 0 C.
Sunday night: Flurries with a low of -1 C.
