Snowfall May Not Disrupt Morning Commute

Posted: Updated:

Light snowfall throughout the day in the Fargo-Moorhead area allowed Fargo and Moorhead plows enough time to catch up on their routes.

Both city street departments said if conditions stay like that throughout the night, your morning commute should have no problems.

But weather systems show another band of snow moving past the metro area over night.

The Fargo Streets Department says crews have been preparing for this storm since Saturday.

That's when they laid down their anti-icing agent to help break up ice when snow gets packed down.

They didn't get quite the accumulation they were expecting, but you will see some slippery spots if you're driving in the morning.

You also may have noticed some areas took a bit longer to clear around the city, but it wasn't enough snow to put Fargo crews behind schedule.

That should be good news if more snow moves through the area.

"By the morning commute, I'm not going to say it might not have an icy spot out there, but overall I see no reason why we won't have the city plowed," Lee Anderson, Fargo Public Works Manager, said.

Moorhead also says they've been able to stay in front of the snowfall.

But, be sure not to park your car on the snow emergency routes through tomorrow morning.

The city says they're promising to pass through all streets within 12 hours of that snowfall ending.
