GREATER LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The wintery conditions aren't finished with parts of the viewing area yet. Greater Lafayette is expecting a snow ice mix that will last on into the morning hours of Monday.

Road crews have been prepping city streets in preparation for the ice. The area is expected to get a tenth of an inch of ice.
1 to 3 inches of snow will also be moving through the area. With the coming conditions, West Lafayette Police Sgt. Stason Wiete said it's important to let the street department do their best.

"Treated the roads in West Lafayette with their de-icer that they have on Friday," said Wiete. "They have their on-call crew on standby as soon as the snow starts to fall they will have them in to start plowing the main thoroughfares of the roads and getting them in shape for the commute." 

Lt. Woody Ricks of the Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Department said to pay special attention to roads less traveled. 

"When we get out in the county we can see some more drifting because things are more wide open out there," Ricks said.

Parts of the viewing area are expected to see precipitation as early as 7 p.m. Sunday. Road Crews will be out to ensure the morning commute is a safe one for everybody Monday morning.
