After several days of mild almost early autumn-like weather on the Eastern Shore,  winter has arrived.  Yesterday’s rain turned to wet snow Friday night.  The snow accumulated somewhat on grassy surfaces, decks and on cars but the roads remained mostly snow and ice-free.  Throughout the night, the weather radar showed the Eastern Shore in a transition zone between snow and rain.  One of the only real casualties of the weather was WESR which experienced antenna icing and is broadcasting on low power this morning.

General Manager Charlie Russell said, ” We’re hoping the temperature rises this morning and that should take care of the problem. We will be back on full power as soon as possible”.

A cold rain is expected to continue throughout the day and into tonight it could become mixed with wet snow and sleet late Saturday, but should not cause problems on the roads other than wet conditions.
