The Marshall County Commissioners earlier this evening made the decision to elevate the travel status from its previous advisory level to a watch level beginning at 6 p.m. Thursday night. A press release from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office indicates strong winds and blowing snow will make drifting roads a significant issue for travelers by tomorrow morning.
A watch level travel advisory means that conditions are threatening to the safety of the public. Only essential travel such as to and from work and in emergency situations is recommended. Emergency action plans should be implemented by schools, businesses, government agencies and other organizations.
The department expects a cold front to arrive with a half-inch to an inch of snow later. Motorists are advised to slow down.
