Salt trucks will be out on the city of Madison's main streets Friday to keep them clear from the light snow expected to fall on the city.
However, don't expect to see snow plows coming up your residential street later in the day to clean up the white stuff.
The city of Madison Snow and Ice Policy states that residential streets will be plowed when accumulations reach the 3 inch mark and the snow is over. However, the forecast only calls for an inch or two of snow to fall in the Madison area Christmas Eve.
The city will send out 30 salt trucks with a couple of sand trucks assigned throughout the day and into the evening. They will focus on main streets, streets with Madison Metro Bus Routes and the streets around hospitals and schools. They will sand the residential streets during the overnight hours into Christmas morning.
