Delaware is expected to be hit by another winter storm on Friday, but the worst of it will not pass through the first state, according to a National Weather Service forecast.

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly, New Jersey, posted the forecast snow totals for Friday’s storm on X, formerly known as Twitter, and Delaware will get between less than an inch of snow in the south to 4 inches in the north. The state is under a winter weather advisory from midnight Thursday until 10 p.m. Friday.

The area that will take the biggest hit from the storm has been expanded since Wednesday evening. The 4-6 inch band follows the I-95 corridor north of Wilmington to just north of Somerville, New Jersey.

In Delaware, Wilmington is expected to receive 3-4 inches of snow, and areas around the state’s northern border will likely receive more than 4 inches. Outside of Wilmington and into Kent County, snow totals of 1-2 inches are expected.

The snow/rain line is expected to be just south of Dover, meaning areas in southern Kent County and Sussex County will receive a wintry mix and less than an inch of snow.

Snow will begin falling between 4 a.m. and 7 a.m., and the snow will taper off early Saturday morning.
