WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - State officials are encouraging Delawareans not to drive if at all possible as a winter storm continued to dump snow throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.

Schools and government offices throughout Delaware were closed Thursday as snow piled up, with accumulations of six inches or more in parts of northern Delaware,

Gov. Jack Markell suggested that people avoid driving if at all possible, but he stopped short of declaring a state of emergency.

The National Weather Service predicted accumulations of up to 8 inches in some parts of the state before the snowfall ended Thursday evening.

AAA Mid-Atlantic warned of a cold and slippery morning commute on Friday after nighttime temperatures down into the single digits.

At least two school districts in northern Delaware will remain closed Friday.
