Be in the know about snow; forecasters predict winter weather Friday

Snow-tification-NEWS

It’s sunny and nearly 60 degrees in Castle Rock. But, residents know, if you don’t like the weather in Colorado, wait five minutes. Forecasters are predicting snow overnight, and the Town’s road crews are ready to go.

During snowstorms, it’s a priority for the Town to make streets safe and passable for both emergency crews and other drivers. Main thoroughfares and school bus routes are the Town’s No. 1 priority. Crews are watching the weather closely, and will be ready to start operations as soon as the snow starts sticking.

Forecasters are predicting between 5 and 7 inches of snow throughout the day, with temperatures hovering around freezing. Rain and light snow is expected to begin around 2 a.m. Friday, heavier snow is expected between 4 and 5 a.m.

While main roads will be the priority, crews will also be prepared to head into residential areas. When 4 inches of snow or more accumulates on the pavement, residents can expect crews to clear one lane on neighborhood streets. 

Residents can monitor snowplow progress and get an estimated time of arrival in their area with the Town’s online snowplow tracker, CRgov.com/plowtracker. The map is color coded and shows a schedule for plowing on the Town’s streets.

Also, remember to get out that shovel. Property owners are required to clear the sidewalks adjacent to their property within 48 hours after a major snow event.
