A winter weather advisory will be in effect from 7 p.m. today (Dec. 8) until 7 p.m. Saturday (Dec. 9) for New Castle County, Kent County and inland Sussex County, said the U.S. National Weather Service.

Snow accumulation will be from 1 to 3 inches. The heaviest snow accumulation should occur between midnight and noon on Saturday, the weather service said.

A winter weather advisory for snow means periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities and use caution while driving. For the latest road conditions, you can call 511.
