After-school activities, programs canceled as icy weather approaches

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Burlington County until 9 p.m. tonight

More winter weather is approaching the Burlington County region as the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory. The advisory will be in effect from 1 to 9 p.m. on Monday.

Burlington Township and the surrounding area is expecting to see freezing rain, sleet and snow this afternoon and evening. The ice will result in very slippery conditions on untreated sidewalks, roads and bridges. Total ice accumulations of a light glaze are expected, with snow and sleet accumulations of up to one half inch.

Ice will likely create hazardous conditions on area roads and walkways as the ground is very cold. The icy conditions could result in significant travel delays for the evening commute.

Residents are advised to be prepared for slippery roads and to slow down and use cautions while driving this evening.

Schools will dismiss at their regular times, but all after-school activities, programs and athletic events are canceled.
