Advisory level warning in place

MARSHALL COUNTY — The "Watch Level" travel advisory that has been in place since 4 P.M. Monday, January 27 at 4:00pm has been reduced to an "Advisory Level" at the direction of the Commissioners, according to an update just received from the Emergency Management Agency.

Some of the secondary roads are still slick and hazardous in spots and drivers should use caution, reduce speed and be mindful of black ice.

The National Weather Service is forecasting up to an inch of additional snow tonight. In addition, South winds will increase to 20 to 25 mph today with gusts between 35 and 40 mph which will lead to blowing and drifting snow in the rural and open areas, especially on East/West roads. Another system is expected Saturday but there is still some uncertainty regarding how strong it will be.
