Snowfall winding down in First State

Feb 20, 2019

Snowfall from Wednesday’s winter storm has largely turned out to be just as expected up and down the First State.

The heaviest snow has been in New Castle County where about 3 inches has fallen in most places,  as of 3 p.m.  The highest reported total was nearly three and a half inches in Hockessin.

In Central Delaware, Smyrna and Dover each have just over 2 inches, but just south of the state capital and in Sussex County little or no accumulation has occurred.

All public school districts closed ahead of the storm, along with the University of Delaware, Delaware State University and Delaware Tech's Dover, Staton and Wilmington campuses.

The State of Delaware closed its offices in Kent and New Castle Counties at 1:30.  The City of Wilmington and New Castle County offices closed at noon.  City offices in Dover closed at 2:30.  The City of Newark was closed to start the day.

The entire state is expected to see rain only Wednesday night with temperatures in the mid-to-upper 30s.  And tomorrow, skies will clear and with the sun will come temps in the 50s.
