Significant snowfall totals are expected in Kent and Sussex counties ranging from five to nine inches,” Markell said. “DelDOT crews are actively working to clear primary roads and will continue to do so. We strongly encourage drivers who do not need to travel to delay or refrain from going on the roads to give DelDOT plows time and ability to work.
“"Expected snowfall totals are not as significant in New Castle County, but we still encourage those traveling in the northern part of the state to use caution and allow extra time to reach their destination today,” Markell said.
