Posted:

SMYRNA, Del.- The Delaware Emergency Operations Center will be activated at 5:30 p.m. Monday, January 26, due to the approaching winter storm, said the Delaware Emergency Management Agency. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 3 p.m. Tuesday.

The National Weather Service forecast is for up to 8-10 inches of snow in far northern New Castle County, 6-8 inches in southern New Castle County (south of Wilmington), 6-8 inches in northern Kent County with 2-4 inches in southern Kent County, and 2-3 inches in northern Sussex County. Sussex County has experienced rain through most of the afternoon, and the National Weather Service has some concerns about flooding in low lying areas of the county.

High winds will accompany this storm, and winds along the coast tomorrow could gust 40-50 MPH, said Gary Laing, community relations officer for DEMA. A Coastal Flood Warning will be in effect from 11 p.m. Monday to 7 a.m. Tuesday. This will impact coastal areas of New Jersey and Delaware, including the Delaware Bay. Moderate flooding is anticipated around the time of tonight's high tide.

The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) said its crews have been working all day to stay ahead of any snow or ice accumulation on roadways. Crews in New Castle and Kent Counties are still working, treating roads with salt, while Sussex County crews will be called in if needed.

No large areas of power outages have been reported.
