Street crews in Johnson County have been plowing roads since snow began falling at midnight Thursday.
More than five inches of snow have fallen, but not much more should accumulate until another snow storm comes through the area Saturday night and Sunday, National Weather Service meteorologist John Hendrickson said.

The Johnson County Highway Department has all 15 of its trucks out clearing roads today, and will continue working throughout the day since wind is expected to pick up speed this afternoon and cause drifting, deputy highway director Matt Olson said.

The county sheriff's office has responded to eight car accidents since about 5 a.m. One accident was reported in Franklin.

On Sunday through Tuesday, temperatures should drop to the lowest they've been in about 20 years, falling to 10 or 15 degrees below zero, he said.
