The north is getting a decent amount of snow fast.   Sussex county is just now seeing snowfall and has been dealing with minor tidal flooding all day.  No dunes have breached, despite the heavy and high seas pummeling the beaches, and route 1 is clear along the coast.  The back bays flooded a wee bit, but not as bad as expected.  The next high tide is at midnight, which is good, we will all be asleep for next minor tidal flooding.

Stay safe and smart there is a lot of ponding water on roads, some of which could freeze later tonight.

Governor John Carney … “I’ve issued a Level 1 Driving Warning for Kent County and New Castle County beginning at 2:45pm. The Level 1 Driving Warning will remain in effect until further notice.”
