This morning’s wintery precipitation will be transitioning to rain as the afternoon wears on. Expect tricky road conditions for the afternoon commute, and an otherwise cold and rainy evening, according to Johnson County Emergency Management.
The National Weather Service expired early a winter weather advisory that had been set to end at 6 p.m.
Johnson County Public Works crews began applying salt this morning at 5 a.m. They are plowing the roads to remove the slush that has been created. Their night crew will report in this evening to treat any spots that freeze tonight.
Public Works is responsible for snow and ice removal in the UNINCORPORATED area of Johnson County - shown on this map in purple.
If you live within city limits, please contact your city directly about snow and ice removal issues. For snow and ice removal issues on a highway, please contact the Kansas Department of Transportation.
Public Works' mission during winter weather is to achieve and maintain safe traffic movement on public roadways within a reasonable time period. If, after 24 hours, you feel Public Works has missed your area in unincorporated Johnson County, please submit an online Request for Service or call Public Works at 913-715-8300. Please also report damage to private property – most commonly to mailboxes – to Public Works.
More wintry weather is possible later in the week.
