Much of Delaware saw two to three inches of snow as the second storm moved through the area.

This time around, no saw more than four inches of snow, according to the DEOS sytem from the University of Delaware and the Delaware Department of Transportation. Smyrna appeared to top the snowfall totals at 4.2 inches.

Traffic appeared to be moving normally on major roads in the state.

As forecast by the National Weather Service, the storm largely ended around 7 a.m. in many areas, as snowfall moved out. The storm rolled in early Friday morning.

Delaware beach areas saw little or no snow. Ellendale in Sussex County reported one inch after seeing 14.5 inches on Monday.

The Delaware Department of Transportation put a brine solution on highways today in preparation for the storm.

State Police reported on Tuesday that one person was injured Tuesday in the snow-related collapse of a chicken house in Ellendale, Sussex County.

Snow accumulations are likely to cause further headaches as the state deals with a surge in Covid-19 cases and testing.

Many sites were closed earlier in the week, with a limited number of openings. Testing centers repoted staff shortages, with a Newark site shutting down on Friday.
