Weather Authority: Sleet, freezing rain to impact area with icy conditions Sunday

The region is bracing for ice overnight Sunday and there are Winter Weather Advisories posted for Philadelphia and points north and west, as well as all of New Jersey and Delaware for a light glaze of ice.

FOX 29’s Scott Williams says the region should see up from a tenth of an inch of ice to two-tenths of an inch of ice. The system will move in from the south, impacting New Jersey and Delaware first, overtaking the entire region after that.


Bridges and overpasses will become slick and dangerous quickly, so if travel is necessary, proceed with much caution. The icy conditions will combine with below-freezing temperatures to create slick conditions on roadways and sidewalks.

Black ice will lead to slippery conditions and it will stay cloudy throughout the day Sunday with temperatures slowly climbing above freezing by midday. 

A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect for portions of central, northern and southern Delaware, as well as most of southern New Jersey from Saturday 8 a.m. to 7 a.m. Sunday.

Another round of winter weather will follow on Monday night into Tuesday and Thursday into Friday.
