Delaware snow: Up to 4 inches predicted


WILMINGTON, DELAWARE (2/4/2016) Up to 4 inches of snow is predicted overnight in Delaware, with a messy commute expected Friday morning.

The precipitation will begin as rain, according to the National Weather Service, but as the temperature falls it will mix with snow, change to all snow and accumulate. The heaviest amounts will be on unpaved surfaces.

Northern Delaware is forecast to get 1 to 3 inches of snow, with 2 to 4 inches in Kent and Sussex counties, the weather service said. A winter weather advisory is in effect from 1 a.m. until noon Friday.

Winds are expected to gust to 20-25 mph.

Earlier today, heavy rain and melting snow pushed water level in the Brandywine nearly 3 feet above normal, and the river was carrying 13 times the normal volume of water just north of Wilmington.
