MADISON, Wis. — Light snow continued to fall around Madison Sunday, prompting the Streets Division to get to work.

Crews have been circling salt routes since about 4 a.m. Sunday morning, officials said, and they will remain active throughout the snowfall.

Officials said that some areas of the city have received more snow than others, such as the west side and near the lakes. Drivers should expect slicker conditions in these areas.

Compounding problems are the falling temperatures. Officials said temperatures are just above the threshold for salt to work, but it will melt snow slower than usual because of the cold.

Officials said that slick conditions should be expected through Monday. Further updates will be given as conditions change.
