UPDATED, 12:01 P.M.: As snow continued to fall on Ocean City, crews from the city's Department of Public Works were plowing and laying salt, attempting to keep up with Mother Nature.

"We're seeing a considerable amount of accumulation," Office of Emergency Management Director Frank Donato said. "Overnight it started as rain and converted to snow, so there's slush underneath the snow. The danger with that is the temperature's going to drop as the day wears on, creating icy conditions."

The temperature is supposed to drop into the teens as the day continues, and the city continues to urge residents to stay off the roads.

The high tide at 9:35 a.m. resulted in minor flooding.

"We were lucky the wind was not a big factor," Donato said.

The forecast was calling for 40 mile an hour winds, which never came to fruition. The next high tide is scheduled for 9:56 p.m.

ORIGINAL: Ocean City's municipal offices were closed Monday morning and the city was asking residents to move their cars in advance of Monday's high tides as a Winter Storm Warning remained in effect until the afternoon.

High tide was expected at 9:33 a.m. Monday morning and 9:56 p.m. Monday night. Minor flooding is likely prior to high tide, and may last for several hours afterward.

City officials reminded residents to move their vehicles from areas that typically flood. Roads may be impassable and drivers are asked not to drive around barricades.

The high temperature on Monday is not expected to exceed the 20s and the wind chill value may be in the teens with winds up to 40 miles an hour possible.
