Parts of Delaware and Maryland are bracing for another winter storm bringing with it snow, ice and hazardous driving conditions for most of Interstate 95.
Winter storm warnings are in effect for the area from early Thursday morning to Friday morning.
Overnight, about an inch of snow is likely to fall, according to the National Weather Service, with low temperatures in the upper 20s.
Snow will continue Thursday, with a chance of sleet and freezing rain in the afternoon. Forecasters expect that an additional 3-5 inches of snow and sleet will accumulate during the day, plus a trace amount of ice.
“Snow Thursday morning will be heavy at times with snowfall rates around 1 to 2 inches per hour possible along with visibility reduced to around one-quarter mile,” according to the National Weather Service forecast.
Areas along and east of I-95 could see “significant ice accumulations” Thursday afternoon and night, which could cause travel issues and power outages.
Delaware and Maryland transportation officials are warning travelers to be prepared to alter Thursday morning travel plans and expect possible power outages.
