This weekend into Monday morning, Delaware may experience rain with extremely cold Arctic winter air. The combination of freezing rain and the extremely low temperatures Sunday night into Monday morning could cause dangerous road conditions.
Delaware State Police statewide continue to plan and prepare for the forecasted winter weather, as we will be ready and available to patrol, assist disabled vehicles, and manage roadway incidents and hazards for the duration of the event. Most calls for service received by Troopers during winter weather are for vehicle crashes, disabled vehicles, and abandoned vehicles which cause a major problem for DelDOT snow removal and brining trucks and equipment, as well as for Troopers responding to emergency situations. Troopers strongly encourage motorists to avoid unnecessary travel. Troopers urge all motorists who must travel to use extreme caution as road and weather conditions may change rapidly over the course of the event:
Avoid unnecessary travel and please keep in mind that part of our state may get a snow mix or freezing rain. Give DelDOT crews safe distance as they will be working to make Delaware roads safer.
Please tell us how we’re doing via our Citizen Satisfaction Survey.
