Winter Snow Hits Ocean City

If you are in Ocean City this week, you may notice a couple of changes as you drive down Coastal Highway. The speed limit, normally 40 mph through North Ocean City, has been reduced to 30 mph, and Downtown, the speed limit has also been reduced. This is due to the expected, unauthorized H2Oi Pop-Up Rally.  It is reasonable to expect heavier than usual traffic, noise and strict enforcement of vehicle laws during the week and weekend.

It seems as though weather forecasters are predicting for yet another snow storm to hit the Ocean City area this Tuesday, January 11th. Weather predictors claim that this major winter snow storm will start on Tuesday and continue until Wednesday of this week.

Some spots from Indianapolis to Cincinnati are predicting over a foot of accumulation. A “Light Wintry Mix” is set to fall tomorrow according to the Weather Channel. With a high of 32 degrees and 60% precipitation expected, this mix could disrupt any plans you may have in Ocean City midweek.


A winter storm warning has been issued starting Tuesday during the afternoon rush hour. Be careful commuting through the evening and into Wednesday. Heavy snow is expected Tuesday night in some nearby cities like Washington, Annapolis, Baltimore, and Philadelphia. With this being said, Ocean City should also brace for heavy snowfall. 


Severe disruption to air travel is always a chance when snow is involved, so if you have plans to get out of town, call your airline to verify that your flight is still on schedule first. The roads in the Ocean City area are always a bit messy when snow is involved, so only drive if necessary and do so with great caution.


There are still traces of snow around Ocean City from the December 26th blizzard. How do you feel about more snow accumulating?
