Slight Wintry Mix Predicted for Friday Morning, DelDot Crews Prepare

Posted: Updated:
DOVER, Del. - While rain is expected for most of Delmarva Friday, weather forecasters say there could be slight snow accumulations and chances of sleet over parts of northern Delmarva early Friday morning.

Because of this, the Delaware Department of Transportation says crews will be on the roads before dawn Friday, just in case. While these plans may change depending on the weather, DelDOT says it has made plans for staffing and operations for the morning hours.

In New Castle County, which forecasters say has the greatest chance of seeing wintry precipitation, DelDOT says it will have half crews report to work between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. Friday. In Kent County, DelDOT says it will have about a forth of the available crews repot at 5 a.m. Friday, and in Sussex County, another forth of the staff will report at 2 a.m. 

Across the state Thursday afternoon, DelDOT says road temperatures ranged from 67 degrees to nearly 80 degrees, however, roads will cool overnight, so officials warn that there may be freezing temperatures on bridges, overpasses and some roads by morning.
