The warming weather of Tuesday has been replaced by a new snow storm that slid into the county early Wednesday morning, covering the roads with snow, and providing new challenges both on land and sea.

“At this point, we’d really like to encourage drivers to stay off the roads if at all possible.” said County Public Works Director Jon Shannon. “Our crews have been working hard, and will continue to do so, but at the rate the snow is falling right now, it’ll be tough to keep some island roads from being very, very slippery. The more cars on the road, the harder it is for us to keep them clear.” explained Shannon.

Gail warnings for boats have been posted for for rest of the week, citing northeast winds of 30 to 40 knots and wind waves of 4 to 7 feet, and gusts up to 30+ mph on land.

As of Wednesday morning the predictions are for improvements by Thursday, but falling snow again this weekend.
