Johns Creek Weather Update – 6:00 p.m.

February 12, 2014

Icy treesRoad Conditions
As of 6 p.m. Wednesday, Johns Creek Police patrol officers report that road conditions are deteriorating throughout the City. The frozen precipitation that has fallen most of the day is now falling at a faster rate. That, combined with falling temperatures as evening arrives, will increase the risks of driving anywhere tonight.

"This remains a hazardous situation and people should stay off the roads," said Police Chief Ed Densmore. "We are still under a State of Emergency, and we need to keep the roads clear for our public works crews to do their work and for any emergency response needed.

Though no roads in Johns Creek have been closed as of this time, ice accumulation continues to make travel very risky and challenge City crews working to clear the ice.

No trees have been reported down as yet, but this risk is also high as the ice accumulates.

The National Weather Service (NWS) still predicts 1-2 inches of snow for our area, before Thursday afternoon.
