The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for portions New Jersey and Pennsylvania, warning residents to prepare for challenging weather conditions on Friday, January 19, 2024. The advisory is in effect from 4:00 am to 10:00 pm.
According to the latest forecast, Berks County is expected to experience moderate snowfall. The National Weather Service predicts total snow accumulations ranging from 3 to 5 inches during the advisory period.
Motorists are urged to exercise caution as slippery road conditions are anticipated. The hazardous weather could potentially impact both the morning and evening commutes, making travel challenging for residents in the affected regions.
In addition to the snow accumulation, temperatures are expected to drop rapidly into the teens late Friday night. This significant temperature drop poses a risk of untreated roads becoming icy and dangerous. Authorities are advising residents to slow down and use extreme caution while traveling during the advisory period.
As winter weather conditions can change rapidly, residents are advised to plan ahead and make any necessary adjustments to their travel plans.
