The National Weather Service in Mount Holly, N.J. has adjusted forecasts for New Castle County with lesser snowfall accumulations from the earlier predictions, and the level of alert. However, late Monday evening and Tuesday travel will still be hazardous given the conditions of blowing/drifting snow.
New Castle County Government is operating at normal, business hours. Employees driving to work are urged to exercise caution when on the road.
Light rain is expected until 7 a.m., changing to a mix and then light snow during the day. Total daytime snow accumulation is less than 1 inch.
New Castle County will be under a Winter Weather Advisory from Noon today until 6 p.m. Tuesday. Later in the evening on Monday, after rush hour, is the expected formation of the Nor’easter that will impact NCC overnight into all day Tuesday.
