The City of Milton has a holistic plan to deal with winter
weather, but everything is in a holding pattern because forecasters are having
a hard time modeling the coming storm.
"We have Public Works, Police and Fire, and City Hall staffing plans in place to deal with winter weather – meaning spreaders, etc.," said Jason Wright, the city's Communications manager. "However, right now, everything is in a holding pattern because according to AFCEMA, the mechanics of this storm are so rare that computer forecasting and meteorologists are have a hard time modeling it."
Wright said the city has been told the winter storm watch likely will switch to a warning later this afternoon. It's uncertain now how much snow will fall and where the storm will hit.
"Everything we know at this point has the worst part being south of us," he said.
Even if the snow and sleet do miss Milton, make sure you bundle up. The high temperature will only reach 28 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.
