Just when you thought old man winter was taking a siesta, he is threatening our peace once again this time with ice.
The National Weather Service is reporting that snow is likely to begin falling after 3 a.m. Tuesday. Then the freezing rain will come at 9 a.m., followed by rain and snow in the afternoon and more freezing rain during the night.
The ice poses a concern for drivers, because road conditions could become increasingly hazardous as the storm progresses. The added weight of ice could also threaten the integrity of roofs and other structures, William Hackett, state director of emergency management, said in a letter to town officials.
Residents are advised to look for cracked walls and roof leaks, as these could be early indications of structural failure. Contact Weston's building department official Rack Gleason at firstname.lastname@example.org if you think you may have a roof problem. The Weston Volunteer Fire Department can help during an emergency.
