Residents Urged to Prepare for Freezing Rain and Snow

The National Weather Service is calling for freezing rain early tomorrow morning, which will transition to a heavy, wet snow Thursday afternoon. Accumulations are expected to range between three to five inches for the Lower Eastern Shore.

 

The heaviest snow accumulations are expected to take place between midday Thursday into Thursday evening. Those who must venture out onto area roadways are warned to exercise extreme caution, as icy roadway conditions and periods of low visibility will make driving hazardous.

WCES cautions that hypothermia can occur quickly when exposed to low temperatures. Bundle up if headed outdoors. Wear layers of lightweight clothing that can be added to or removed as needed and protect extremities by wearing gloves and hats. Be sure to protect pets from the cold as well by bringing them indoors and providing them with access to unfrozen water.
