What temperature is salt ineffective on roadways?
At what temperature does ice melt (salt) become ineffective?
We spoke to Meteorologist Marshall McPeek, he says the city and the Ohio Department of Transportation states salt usually stops working well once the temperatures get below 26-27 degrees. There are other ice-melting products that homeowners can use that will work when the temperatures are a little bit colder.
Check the packaging when you buy salt, it will say how cold it will work.
