Winter Operations Update for Feb. 24, 4:00 p.m.

The Naperville area is under a winter storm watch for potentially significant snowfall through Wednesday evening. Current forecasts call for rain this afternoon before transitioning to snow sometime Tuesday morning. Periods of moderate, to briefly heavy, wet snow is predicted during this time, with 4 to 8 inches possible by Wednesday evening.

Public Works crews are monitoring conditions and will begin pretreatment of roads and plowing operations based on actual conditions.

If snow falls as predicted, motorists should expect difficult travel and hazardous conditions during the Tuesday evening and Wednesday commutes. Streets will be slushy and potentially slippery due to continuous snowfall. When driving, leave plenty of distance between vehicles and slow down. Use caution when walking on sidewalks, parking lots and train station platforms. Please do not park on City streets once winter weather begins, as this creates obstacles for plows and hinders snow and ice removal efforts.
