WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Delaware officials are warning of dangerous driving conditions as temperatures drop and melting snow and rain freeze on roads.
The National Weather Service says rain is expected to end a few hours before temperatures drop to the freezing point as the sun sets Monday.
Delaware Department of Transportation officials said crews were treating roads with salt Monday in advance of the freezing temperatures. Officials advised motorists to try to complete their travel before 6 p.m. Monday, by which time roads were expected to freeze.
Forecasters issued a wind chill advisory for Delaware from 1 a.m. Tuesday until noon, warning that wind chills could dip to 10 or 15 degrees below zero. Officials warn people to limit their time outdoors if possible during this period.
