Winter storm coats Delaware with a few inches of snow in many spots


Much of Delaware saw three to four inches of snow from a less than violent storm that caused big problems in the Midwest.

The DEOS system from the University of Delaware reported that snowfall amounts varied from an inch and a half in Bethany Beach and the northern edge of the three to four inches in many areas.

Skies were clearing in northern Delaware at mid-afternoon.

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly NJ reported Sunday morning that snowfall estimateswere reduced along the I-95 corridor and along the coast in Delaware and Jersey.

The lower snowfall totals to the south are due to warmer temperatures. The green and orange lines on the map above denote areas that might see lower-than-forecast snowfall.

By Saturday evening and into early Sunday, the wintry precipitation moved across the Ohio Valley and then the mid-Atlantic region with snow developing across much of Virginia and West Virginia, and lighter snow north of Maryland.

After a quiet late fall and early winter that saw one surprise stormthat led to numerous complaints, the Delaware Department of Transportation put brine on roads on Thursday in preparation for tougher conditions over the weekend.

Roads remained passable during the latest storm, although the snow remained heavy and wet toward the end of the storm. The impact was lessened by the storm coming on the weekend.
