OCEAN CITY UNDER WINTER STORM WARNING

A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for the Ocean City area until midnight tonight. Forecasters are predicting 5-8 inches of snow and gusty winds from the north of 20-25 MPH with gusts up to 40-45 MPH which may create blizzard-like conditions. Roads will quickly become snow covered and slippery due to the rapidly falling temperatures and increased snowfall rates. The combination of snow and gusty winds will produce blowing snow that will reduce visibility to below one mile at times.

Ocean City residents are advised to limit traveling this evening as travel conditions are expected to become dangerous. If residents must drive, stay alert, drive slowly and expect icy roadways.

  2. I hope everyone stays off the roads; when you go out in this type of weather, you not only put yourself in danger, but all the police personnel and fire department personnel too! Don't be selfish, stay in!!!!

  4. I hope everyone there stays safe and warm. Don't go if you don't have too. We visit there every year for the car show in May. The weather heading your way is something else.
