The Hopewell Valley Emergency Management is monitoring the upcoming weather event for Sunday 2/1/15 into Monday 2/2/15. Updates of significance will be posted periodically beginning on Monday morning.
Motorists are urged to drive cautiously and to be alert for icing conditions on roadways.
The following has been issued by the National Weather Service:
A winter storm is expected to impact the region late today through Monday.
• Winter Storm Warnings are in effect for northern and northwestern portions of the region. Winter weather advisories have been issued for far southeastern PA, far northern Delmarva, and much of central and southern NJ.
• Models continue to shift the low pressure system track farther north. This is modeling warmer air across the region at the surface and just above it late tonight and Monday. Because of this, mixed precipitation (rain/snow/sleet/freezing rain) is expected, especially south of I-80.
• The highest snow totals continue to be pushed farther north.
• The greatest threat for freezing rain still exists across portions of southeast PA into central NJ early Monday morning. A quick changeover from snow to freezing rain to rain is expected across northeast MD and the Philadelphia Metro area into southern NJ.
• The Monday morning and evening commutes will be adversely affected.
• Very cold air will filter back into the region behind this system on Tuesday.
• Monitor the latest information on our website at weather.gov/phi.
