Winter weather will welcome The Alternative Press (TAP) of Lower Providence. This, the first launch date of the site, is marked with cold temperatures and icy conditions the residents of the community have become all too familiar with this winter season.

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a winter storm warning to last until 5 p.m. NWS predicts four to eight inches of additional snow accumulation. Many in the township just recently dug themselves out of the last batch of snow.

According to the township’s website, the Lower Providence Township Buildings are all closed for today, Monday, Feb. 3.

With temperatures in the lower 30s, according to NWS, many area business are following suit. Winds are gusting around 20 miles per hour, causing less than a quarter mile of visibility, said the NWS warning.

“A high impact is expected by the middle of the morning commute with hazardous conditions,” said the NWS. “Very poor driving conditions will exist during bursts of heavier snow. Heavy, wet snow could take down tree limbs and cause scattered power outages. Any standing water or slush will freeze solid tonight.”

If you experience power outages in the township, contact PECO via its emergency line at 800-841-4141.
