Weather conditions since Tuesday have been perfect in all the wrong ways for local road conditions. Stiff western winds have blown snow across Door and Kewaunee County roads. Traffic has ground the drifting snow into a sheet of ice. Kewaunee County Highway Department Head Todd Every says salt supplies are in great shape, but they have still resorted to mixing in sand to help combat the icing. That mixture requires warmer temperatures than pure salt.
This weekend’s spell of mild temps gives way to the chance for more snow by midweek.
