The break was good while it lasted for the Door County Highway Department as another winter weather system approaches the area this weekend. Three to six inches of snow could fall Saturday night into Sunday with chances of freezing rain also mixed into the forecast. The week off from snow has allowed highway department crews to clear storm drains and make necessary repairs to their equipment. The higher temperatures will also help in the snow removal process, but Door County Highway Commissioner John Kolodziej warns you do not want it to warm up too quickly.
Kolodziej says the county-owned supply of salt is in good shape, but it has been directed to add more sand to the state-owned ice melt due to its low levels.
