Hazardous Travel Expected

FROM WCSH’S TODD GUTNER --- We will be all snow by the evening and as soon as darkness sets in roads will start getting slippery and snow covered. The worst of the storm will be from 6PM to about 2AM tonight and driving will be very difficult with snow rates of 1 inch per hour and limited visibility...please be careful.

The storm will be a fast mover and will be gone by daybreak with just some lingering flurries during the morning. Amounts will be impressive with most receiving 6-12 inches of snow. There is some concern for a period of sleet at the coast, that and marginally cold enough air should keep amounts down just a bit especially Downeast and in York County so 6 inches or less is expected there.

As the storm swirls by later tonight winds will pick up and gust over 30 miles per hour along the coast and with this being a very clingy snow power outages will be possible.
