[ARCHIVED] Winter Weather Advisory - 2/19/2018

As of 1041 AM, the National Weather Service has dropped the ice storm warning for the City of Columbus.  However, the City of Columbus is under a Winter Weather Advisory for freezing rain.  Total accumulations of one tenth to two tenth of an inch are expected from Monday evening at 6:00 PM to Tuesday at 3 PM.  The ice will result in difficult travel conditions, including the morning commute on Tuesday.  Current road conditions can be monitored through the WI DOT at:

The threat to infrastructures, such as power lines, has diminished.  However, if the freezing rain causes a downed power line, do not get out of your vehicle or approach the power line.  Call 911 to report the downed power line.  In addition, if use of a generator is needed, remember to keep generator outside the home and have a working carbon monoxide detector.

As a voluntary effort to help keep the roads safe, please remove vehicles from residential streets to assist the Department of Publics Works.
