What Approaching Winter Storm Means For Ocean City This Weekend

first_imgA Winter Weather Advisory is in effect tonight for the possibility of a brief mix of snow & ice. A storm system that will affect us this weekend bring mainly rain for parts of Saturday and Sunday. Luckily, we will be climbing out of our deep freeze before the brunt of the precipitation arrives.After a starting Friday morning with temperatures in the teens, an approaching storm would usually mean trouble. Fortunately, this storm will track to our west and with a surge of milder air ahead of the system, any frozen precipitation will be short lived. The leading edge of snow/mix will move into our area late Friday night. With temperatures below freezing over the last couple of days, any snow or mix that falls will stick. So roadways could get slick for late tonight into the overnight hours if the precipitation arrives in time.

So the longer it takes to arrive, the less snow/mix we would see.
