Winter Weather Advisory for Germantown, Icing Leads to Numerous Accidents
By Kevin O’Rourke
The National Weather Service has issued and extended a Winter Weather Advisory for the northern Montgomery County area, including Germantown, until 11:00 am.
This means that the area can expect sleet and freezing rain with little accumulations. “Sleet and freezing rain will begin early this morning,” said the National Weather Service advisory. “Precipitation will change to all freezing rain by mid-morning before transitioning to rain as temperatures rise above freezing.”
The NWS forecasts that ice accumulations on roadways and sidewalks will result in hazardous conditions, and this his already proven true as Montgomery County Fire Rescue Service is reporting numerous collisions around the Germantown area, already this morning.
