City Crews Preparing for Winter Storm on Thursday, Feb. 17

The City’s crews pretreated residential streets today, Wed., Feb. 16, ahead of a winter storm set to impact the area on Thurs., Feb. 17. Crews are scheduled to begin working again at 7 p.m. this evening, and will start pretreating primary and secondary streets depending on conditions.

The storm is expected to begin as rain on Wednesday evening, which may impact pretreatment, and will eventually transition to freezing rain/ice, sleet and snow early Thursday morning. Freezing rain and sleet accumulations have been reduced from earlier forecasts, but Lee’s Summit may receive 6-10 inches of snow with isolated areas of 14 inches possible. Total snow accumulations are dependent on the track and timing of the storm. Temperatures are expected to drop into the single digits Thursday, but will rise above freezing again by Friday and into the weekend.

Residents are encouraged to stay home on Thursday if possible. If residents must get out, they should ensure vehicles are properly equipped to handle deep snow. Residents can help speed up the snow removal process by removing vehicles from the street prior to the storm.

The City will continue to monitor the forecast and update its response accordingly.
