  • Snow is accumulating in Kent County, and a winter weather advisory is in effect until 9 p.m., Sunday, according to the National Weather Service.
    Snow and sleet accumulations are expected to reach 1 to 3 inches for Kent and inland Sussex areas, and higher accumulations are expected in New Castle County. Ice accumulation is also expected.
    Snow will continue through the afternoon, with the snow mixing with sleet in the afternoon into the evening. The mixture will change over to brief freezing rain this evening before rain tonight, the National Weather Service has stated.
    Residents should expect hazardous road conditions throughout the night.
    The Delaware Department of Transportation mobilized snow crews Sunday morning in all three Delaware counties with plowing underway in New Castle and Kent. Road treatment is also underway in parts of Sussex County, said DelDOT spokesman Jim Westhoff.
    "DelDOT is requesting that motorists not venture out this evening and prepare for slow going tomorrow morning until temperatures warm," Westhoff said.
