Winter Weather Advisory for New Haven County

By Sam Bashaw

Hamden and its surrounding neighbors are once again at the mercy of Mother Nature.

Starting at 9 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 17, New Haven County is expecting a mix of snow, sleet and rain as temperatures drop down to just under freezing, according to the Weather Channel. Ice is expected to follow, making roads dangerous until Monday morning when temperatures will still be hovering below 32 degrees. A Winter Weather Advisory, issued by the National Weather Service, is in effect during the hours of 9 p.m. Sunday night and 10 a.m. Monday morning.

The morning of President’s Day could see some hazardous conditions impacting the morning commute and those going to school despite the federal holiday. Be cautious of slippery roads and limited visibility and check your local Department of Transportation services for the most up-to-date road conditions.
