Like it or not, you will have to make sure your shovels are ready, and your snowblowers are tuned up this week. Chances of snow are expected all week long, with one to five inches on the ground expected by Friday. The National Weather Service predicts there could be significant lake-enhanced snow near Lake Michigan, though warmer temperatures could also cause it to be mixed precipitation. For local municipalities like the City of Sturgeon Bay, that means not just preparing their trucks with snow plows and salt but also hustling through the area to pick up the last piles of leaves. Director of Municipal Services Mike Barker is hopeful they will get all the leaves picked up before more significant snowfalls come to the city.
Barker re-emphasized that when the snow plows are out to give them plenty of space to operate and to remain cautious and patient while driving.
