NEWARK, Del.– Delmarva Power says it is closely monitoring a weather forecast that calls for a wintry mix to affect its service territory this week.

The utility said it will schedule and adjust its workforce with the timing of the weather and any resulting customer outages. While Delmarva Power said it will work around the clock to restore any outages that may occur, customers need to be prepared for the possibility of power outages.
