Delaware appears to have avoided the brunt of a powerful storm that is dumping snow in areas to the north.
A Winter Storm Warning has been issued a portion of Delaware, with the storm expected to bring high winds, snow, and a wintry mix of precipitation, the National Weather Service Office in Mount Holly, NJ, reported.
Snowfall totaled three inches or less around the state as the predicted Monday “wraparound”moisture did not fully develop.
The Weather Service had earlier shifted the area with the most snow to the north, although the path is still subject to change.
What we could see
- Strong winds will develop, especially near the coast and over the waters, with gusts reaching 40 to 50+ mph, strongest on Monday, resulting in hazardous boating conditions and potential power outages. Inland, gusts could reach 35 to 45 mph. The area largely avoided outages.
- Coastal flooding is likely and could reach moderate levels as early as Monday morning along the Atlantic coast and Delaware Bay, with additional coastal flooding possible Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning.
