SMYRNA, Del.- Due to a winter storm that passed through the region, Gov . Jack Markell ordered State of Delaware offices closed Tuesday, during regular business hours of 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Non-essential employees were told not to report to work for this period, while essential employees were to report as scheduled. Government offices are also closed Tuesday in all three counties, as well as the cities of Wilmington, Newark, and Dover. Delaware Technical and Community College campuses in Wilmington/Stanton, Dover and Georgetown closed, and classes were canceled at Wesley College's main Dover campus and at Dover Air Force Base. 

Statewide Winter Weather Advisories were canceled by the National Weather Service Tuesday morning before the scheduled expiration time, as accumulating snowfall had ended. 

The Delaware Environmental Observation Center reports the lowest amount of snow, 2.4 inches, occurred at Newark, with the highest measured amount, 6.3 inches, at Stockley. Sussex County was hardest hit, with measurements of 5.9 inches at Laurel and Ellendale, while New Castle County got off lightest as snow measured 2.9 inches at Hockessin, Prices Corner, and White Clay Creek.
