WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Now that the snow has come and gone, crews are keeping an eye on drifting snow.

Street crews have been out since 1 a.m. and are still dealing with the transition from rain Thursday to snow on Friday.

The change in temperatures is causing slick roads.

Street Commissioner Ben Anderson says as winds pick up, drifting becomes a big problem.

They ask people to continue to take their time and watch for drifting.

Police say they haven't seen too many slide-offs and crashes since the snow stopped.

However, all counties in the viewing area remain under travel advisories.

Always remember to use caution near snow plows and give yourself enough time to get to your destination.
