New weather advisory issued: Freezing rain, sleet and snow expected. The ice will result in very slippery conditions on untreated sidewalks, roads and bridges.
The U.S. National Weather Service has issued another Winter Weather Advisory for northern Delaware, which slightly increases the wintry mix accumulation possible.
The 1 p.m. advisory will last until 9 this evening.
Freezing rain, sleet and snow expected. The ice will result in very slippery conditions on untreated sidewalks, roads and bridges.
Total ice accumulations of a light glaze are expected, with snow and sleet accumulations of up to one half inch.
Previously, the weather service said a “few hundredths of an inch of ice will likely accumulate on untreated roads and walkways. Also, there may be a few tenths of an inch of sleet and snow.”
In any event, the weather service said ice will likely create hazardous conditions on area roads and walkways as the ground is very cold. The icy conditions could result in significant travel delays for the evening commute.
A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of freezing rain, sleet and snow will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for slippery roads. Slow down and use caution while driving.
