Heavy rain and snow on the way this week

Adjust Comment Print

Very heavy rain and snow showers will be in store for your Tuesday morning commute, but snow levels will stay slightly above pass levels.

Minor coastal flooding is possible for high tide on Tuesday morning, primarily along the New Jersey shore, Delaware Beaches and shores of the lower Delaware Bay. Slick spots will develop overnight, but with some sun and temperatures near 40 degrees on Monday the impact on area roadways should remain rather minimal for most, especially if they've been pretreated.
