[ARCHIVED] Howell Township, Winter Weather Statement Tuesday, February 4, 2014 4:30pm

Dear Residents:


A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for Monmouth County for a wintry mix of precipitation late tonight that might cause icy road conditions for a brief period of time during the overnight hours into tomorrow morning’s commute.

Another storm system will impact the Monmouth County area and while it will start as snow and sleet, it will quickly change over to all rain. According to current forecast, a wintry mix of precipitation consisting of snow, sleet and rain will start around 11:00pm. Some snow and sleet will overspread the area late this evening, then quickly change over to sleet and freezing rain overnight into early Wednesday morning. Any freezing rain will then change to plain rain during Wednesday morning. The rain should then taper off during Wednesday afternoon. Daytime high temperatures on Wednesday should be in the high 30's with winds northeast 10 to 15mph with gusts up to 20mph.

It is anticipated that the Wednesday morning commute could be hazardous as roads may become icy. It does not take much ice to result in slippery conditions, especially on untreated bridges, overpasses and other elevated surfaces.

Again, a Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for the Monmouth County area. A wintry mix of precipitation will occur late tonight, making the roads icy and slippery for a brief period of time. The wintry mix should quickly change over to all rain and it is anticipated that roads may be hazardous for the Wednesday morning commute. Exercise extreme caution if traveling north or west of the Monmouth County area tonight or Wednesday morning.

Most Sincerely,
Jeffrey Filiatreault
Township Manager
