That's because after spending the winter putting sand and salt on the roads, city crews have been removing the debris for the past several weeks.  The smooth road surfaces may mean less traction for drivers.

The city is asking people to limit unnecessary travel once the snow begins.

City plows and graders will be ready to begin snow removal as early as 2 a.m. Thursday if needed.  Officials are reminding residents to observe alternate parking signs and areas where no parking is allowed between 2 and 6 a.m.

During several storms over the past few years, large waves have attracted visitors to Canal Park, but the city is asking people to stay away this time to avoid safety concerns.  People can watch the waves on numerous online cameras, including a live YouTube feed of the WDIO HarborCam.
