With a wintry mix of snow expected throughout Friday (January 5) and Saturday (January 6), the City of Salina has salted all bridge decks and elevated surfaces. Salt trucks are equipped and staff is on standby ready to be deployed when a further need arises.

Forecast Outlook:

  • Rain may mix in Friday afternoon & evening with all activity ending before midnight.
  • Any light snow accumulation will likely be limited to elevated surfaces in the event a heavier band moves through. (Less than 1/4"of slush)
  • Salina has a brief window for slushy accumulations on all surfaces through 9am as all roads are below freezing until then.

The public is asked to allow ample space when approaching salt trucks from behind, as the equipment will be distributing salt to the roadway. Driving too closely to equipment could present additional challenges and safety concerns for operators and other motorists.

For additional information on the storm or snow removal operations, please visit the Cityโ€™s website at, the Cityโ€™s Facebook page at or call the General Services office at (785) 309-5750.
