The City of St. Peters’ Snow and Ice Removal Team is gearing up for a winter storm that is forecasted to bring blizzard-like conditions and dangerously low temperatures to our area on Thursday, Dec. 22, 2022. Slick pavement is expected to make travel dangerous at times. Drifting snow also could be a problem well into Friday morning, Dec. 23, 2022.
The National Weather Services issued a Wind Chill Watch from Dec. 22, 2022 at 6 p.m. to Dec. 24, 2022 at noon. Wind chills could drop to between -15 to -35 degrees, with the coldest readings on Friday and Saturday mornings (Dec. 23-24).
At these temperatures, frostbite can occur in less than 30 minutes. Please exercise caution if you must be outdoors. DO NOT leave pets outside for extended periods of time due to these potentially life-threatening cold temperatures.
Our plow drivers need help from residents to keep streets as clear as possible.
Please do two things to help us clear snow or ice:
1) Do not park your car on the street. Move cars to your driveway or garage.
2) Place trash carts at the edge of your driveway on collection day, not on the street or on the curb.
By moving obstructions such as cars and trash carts from the street, ice and snow removal crews can work more effectively and safely to treat and clear our roads.
