Gov. Jack Markell declared a state of emergency for Monday and closed the state government. The city of Wilmington is closed Monday and all three county governments, all public school districts and several colleges are closed as well.
 
The National Weather Service is now forecasting less snow than before, since the storm is traveling further south than expected. Forecasters now expect 6 inches to 8 inches in Kent and Sussex counties and 2 inches to 6 inches in New Castle County. A winter storm warning is effect until 4 p.m.
