PRINCESS ANNE, Md.- Some parts of Delmarva received snow overnight, resulting in several school delays across the region.
In some counties, wet snow has covered the ground. WBOC reporter Cleo Green was in Somerset County, Md., this morning, where roads were fairly clear. However, the State Highway Administration is warning motorists to take it easy. They say the best advice for driving in bad winter weather is not to drive at all, if you can avoid it. Be especially careful on bridges, overpasses and infrequently traveled roads, which will freeze first.
Another WBOC reporter, Karen Campbell, was in Sussex County, Del., this morning. She reports that parts of the county only received a dusting of snow overnight. The roads in some areas, like Route 13 in western Sussex County, are still wet.
Highway officials in both states advise that even at temperatures above freezing, if the conditions are wet, you might encounter ice in shady areas or on exposed roadways like bridges so motorists are advised to exercise caution.
Truck driver Darnell Mitchell told WBOC this morning that from his travels, road conditions vary throughout Delmarva. He advised, "Take your time. Take your time going in. Because you never know with these road conditions it can be deceiving out here just take your time and be safe."
