A mild winter so far came to a halt today as snow began falling before sunrise, and 4 to 6 inches is possible in Dayton by Sunday morning.

About 41 city snow trucks were put into operation at about 6 a.m. Saturday to salt and plow major thoroughfares and roadways, said Tom Ritchie Jr., Dayton’s deputy director of public works.

The crews will continue to work until a shift change at 10 p.m. Drivers will work through 7 a.m. Sunday.

“We’ll be working around the clock,” Ritchie said.

City crews will apply salt to help prevent the snow-covered and wet roadways from icing over, and they will plow the streets when the snow gets thick enough, Ritchie said.

The city has been plowing major thoroughfares like Main Street and highways like U.S. 35 and U.S. 4, and it plows residential streets if the accumulation reaches 4 inches, Ritchie said.

The city of Dayton had only used less than 300 tons of salt before this weather event, officials said. In the 2017-2018 winter season, the city used 11,000 tons of salt.
