Saskatoon streets are expected to get slippery as the temperatures start to drop, freezing over the rain and melted snow.

City snow crews, including 13 sanders were out spreading de-icing materials overnight and 14 sanders continued into the morning focusing on highly travelled streets, intersections and bridges.

Thursday afternoon, the Saskatchewan RCMP said they had received 43 reports of weather-related traffic issues including collisions, as well as vehicles and semis stuck in ditches.
