Tow truck operators are urging motorists to slow down as the snow slicks up area roads.
 
Conditions on roads and highways in and around Fort Saskatchewan are a little bit slippery as the snow began falling overnight.
 
"I'm noticing everyone's in a hurry on Highway 21 this morning (January 9)," said Fort Sask Towing owner Chris Smith. "It's not the smartest move."
 
Even with blowing snow, visibility has been described as decent.
 
Alberta 511 showed Highways 15 and 37 along with other regional roads to be partly snow and ice covered. Highway 21 was shown as dry with possible wet spots.
 
Fort Saskatchewan and provincial snowplow and sanding crews are out cleaning up the roads and sanding them.
 
"The highways aren't the greatest, if they can keep that 100 kilometres per hour or a little bit less then they'll be fine," advised Smith.
 
So far though, nothing major attributed to the roads for Fort Sask Towing, just a few car battery boosts early this morning.
