Spring Storm Clears Out

We may be five days into Spring, but you would never know it given the weather.

    A spring storm delivered a wintry mix of rain and snow across our area on Monday causing slippery roads and traffic nightmares for drivers.

    A driver was seriously injured after he was trapped inside an overturned tractor trailer on I-295 near exit 34A around 9:26 a.m. Investigators say the driver was traveling in the northbound lane, lost control of the truck, and ended up in the southbound lane. The victim was taken to Cooper Medical Center. Debris from the accident hit another vehicle. No word on the driver’s condition. No other injuries have been reported at this time.

    Light precipitation continues to fall throughout the region, though most of it is only rain at this point. Some of the rain could turn to light snow late Monday night going into Tuesday morning though it won't be enough to accumulate.

    An area of low pressure is moving off shore and taking all the precipitation with it. Road temperatures are around 50 degrees which will prevent any icy spots on the road.

    The mix should finally clear out by Tuesday which will be mostly cloudy with highs around the mid-40's. Temperatures will slowly warm up into the weekend which will feel more like Spring, with highs near the mid-50's on Easter Sunday.
