Ron Dilbeck and crews at the Campbell County Road Department are checking equipment today to make sure that they are “good to go to battle the snow.”
Dilbeck, the superintendent of roads, tells WLAF, “We’ve got to get the snow that we’re expecting tomorrow off the roads before the real cold temps get here.” He adds that he and his staff will be going wide open. Dilbeck plans to be out all night tonight watching to see what is going on. The full crew will likely be back on the job starting Tuesday morning around 3 am or so.
There will be 16 plow trucks out in full force first thing Tuesday morning. The county road department will be pushing snow over some 700 miles of county roads.
Rain is expected to turn to all snow before daybreak on Tuesday with an anticipated one to three inches of snow accumulating here in Campbell County. Temps slide to 25-degrees overnight and continue cooling all the way to a Tuesday night low of 17. The real cold temps Dilbeck is talking about arrive Wednesday with a high of 24 ahead of a low of six above on Wednesday night. Temps begin moderating Thursday though will not go back above freezing until Friday. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 01/28/2019-11:45AM)
