Watch for slick spots as light snow and freezing drizzle expected Sunday   

Light snow and freezing drizzle could result in slick spots on all roads Sunday, while untreated city and rural roads still are slush covered, slick and hazardous.

Both the Salem and Centralia Water Plants record just a trace of additional snow after seven Saturday morning through seven Sunday morning, but a considerable amount of rain.  The Salem Water Plant recorded 55-hundredths of an inch of rain, for a two day total of melted precipitation of 1.05 inches.  The Centralia Water Plant had 51-hundredths of an inch of rain, for a two day total of melted precipitation of 1.03 inches.   The Salem Water Plant had recorded 4 inches of snow on the ground Saturday morning and the Centralia Water Plant 5 inches.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Department reported several calls Saturday morning of vehicles sliding off I-57.    They handled a report of a vehicle jackknifed that ran into the roadside ditch on Green Street Road at the Brewery Hill intersection just before six Saturday night.  The driver, 21-year-old Austin Arnold, of Centralia, was not injured.

The slick conditions along with unplowed parking lots have led to a number of churches to cancel services on Sunday.   Click here to see the list.
