Over 100 service calls in MKE Co. alone from last nights 1-2" of snow. Light snow has a greater impact on roads when temps are in the single digits (salt isn't effective when it's this cold).— Sam Kuffel (@SamKuffelWx) February 12, 2021
With another 1-3" on the way for Saturday, plan on slick roads to start the weekend. https://t.co/fSX4lZkHnJ
Drivers are urged to slow down on slippery roads.
"We want you to arrive at your destination safely," said the MCSO.
