As the snow continues to fall, Aurora remains under a Winter Weather Advisory until 6 p.m. tonight.
The Aurora Snow Team has had full continuous operations on all snow routes throughout the night - with a focus and priority on primary roadways and major thoroughfares. Because of the rate and intensity of the snow, plowed roads have become quickly covered again. If travel is necessary, motorists should use extreme caution. With additional assistance from local contractors, residential street operations will commence toward the end of the snow event. The area will then enter a frigid cold streak with wind chill temperatures falling as low as -55 degrees at points throughout the week.
