This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Scattered light snow is expected to fall throughout the day on Sunday. Even though this may not seem like a very big amount of snow, it is still enough to cover the roadways which can create slick spots.

In the City of Milwaukee, 96 salt trucks were out overnight to treat roadways. According to the Department of Public Works, crews will salt main streets first, then secondary streets.

Meanwhile, we invite you to check out a host of online tools to help you get through the weather with ease.
