DOVER, Del. (AP) - Delaware is bracing for up to 10 inches of snow in parts of the state and the governor has issued a warning to motorists to be cautious on the roads.

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 too. A winter storm warning is effect until 4 p.m.

The Delaware Department of Transportation says road crews are plowing and salting primary routes in parts of the state as snow starts to accumulate. The speed limit on Interstate 495 has been reduced to 45 mph.

If this storm meets forecasters’ predictions, this will be Wilmington’s second snowiest year since the late 1800s.
