The Shore has experienced coastal flooding, with the inundation of roadways, and a coastal flood warning is in effect until 5 p.m. Wednesday.
Winds will stay blustery through today. Blowing and drifting snow will cause major travel concerns during the morning rush, and it advised to stay off the roads if possible.
As high temperatures struggle to surpass the freezing mark through Wednesday, the snow will not start to melt for several days, thus poor and icy road conditions will continue to be an issue through at least midweek.
