Thursday, Jan. 16, 8 p.m.: Another winter storm is on its way to Olathe. Forecasts are calling for a wintry mix of snow and sleet before dawn on Friday, changing over to freezing rain around sunrise.

Crews expect road conditions to be slick and hazardous as pavement temperatures will initially be below freezing. By late morning, temperatures are predicted to warm above freezing, and the storm should shift to regular rain. Even as temperatures warm, road conditions will continue to be hazardous throughout the day. As temperatures drop Friday night into Saturday morning, it is likely that any melted snow or ice will re-freeze on pavement surfaces.

City crews reportdd for the night shift at 7:30 p.m. Thursday night to pre-treat all roadways with salt. Day Shift drivers will report for duty at 7:30 a.m.
on Friday, and crews will rotate on 12-hour shifts treating roads as needed until road temperatures rise above freezing.
