Written on: January 5th, 2014 in Alert Messages New Castle Safety Weather Related Notices

The National Weather Service has issued a Freezing Rain Advisory for New Castle County. The advisory will remain in effect from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. The NWS expects ice accumulations of less than a tenth of an inch on northern Delaware roads. Untreated roads and sidewalks could become hazardous, and travel could become difficult. Drivers should be prepared for slippery roads and should not follow other vehicles as closely as they normally would. Temperatures will be in the teens and 20s this morning and rise about freezing by early afternoon.
