An early morning snow dusted Clark County, but much more may be on the way tonight, leaving municipalities to stretch their salt supplies.
Clark County Road Supervisor Kevin Wilson said he had about 500 tons of road salt and 1,000 tons of a sand and salt mix on hand for the network of roads for subdivisions and county roads, respectively.
"We're trying to stretch it as much as we can," Wilson said.
The snow arrived today shortly before 5 a.m., he said, and crews have been out working to coat the roads and prepare them for additional snow and possibly ice. An hour earlier, there was nothing on the ground, he said.
According to the National Weather Service, Clark County is facing even more severe conditions over the next few days.
Weather experts are predicting a low of 25 degrees tonight and around 3 inches of new snow accumulation, mostly after 1 a.m. tomorrow. The National Weather Service also expects periods of freezing rain and sleet to cover the area all day Tuesday with up to a half inch of ice accumulation possible.
