About 4 inches of snow was expected in New Castle County, and 6 to 8 inches in Kent and Sussex.

Markell warned that temperatures are expected to fall to single digits overnight. He advised motorists to continue to exercise caution if they need to travel.

Government offices and all schools in Delaware were closed Monday.
