Portions of Delaware of saw a white Super Bowl Sunday.

Snow began falling Sunday afternoon in Kent and Sussex counties. The Delaware Department of Transportation reported roads became slippery in some places. DelDOT sprayed brine on roads on Saturday.

The biggest accumulations appeared to occur in the central Delaware and Greenville, according to the DEOS system from the University of Delaware.

(See below for 7 a.m. figures). Joe Biden was at his Greenville area home at the time after making his first trip back to the state as president.

The Weather Service reported that surface temperatures were higher than forecast leading to a wintry mix. In much of Delaware, the ground temperature was above freezing and led to slush, rather than snow-covered roads.

The fast-moving storm moved out of the area on Sunday afternoon.

Snow estimates were earlier reduced earlier and substantially lowered in southern Delaware and southeast New Jersey.

The previous storm moved to the north and dropped about three inches in some areas of the state. Areas to the north in Pennsylvania saw up to two feet.
