The National Weather Service in Wakefield has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the Lower Peninsula, the Middle Peninsula, the Eastern Shore and Surry and Sussex counties until 5pm Monday.

A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties.

The National Weather Service says there is the potential for 1 to 3 inches of snow to fall in these areas, along with ice accumulations less than a quarter of an inch.

Roads may become snow covered and slippery and travel may be dangerous, especially Sunday night through the morning rush hour on Monday.  The afternoon drive home will also be a challenge for some of us. Please use caution.

Temperatures will only climb into the upper 30s Monday with winds from the northeast at 15-25 mph with gusts to 35 mph.
