Northern Del. could see up to a foot of snow with next storm

March is coming in like a lion.

Snowfall from a cross-county storm that spans 1,500 miles will hit the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic Sunday night, sticking with us for most of Monday.

AccuWeather's Danielle Knittle says it will start as rain or snow showers late Sunday afternoon but transition into snow Sunday night.

"As we work our way into the latter part of Sunday night, especially after midnight and throughout the day Monday that's when we're going to be dealing with the heart of the system likely in the form of some wet snow and it looks like it's going to stick around right on through Monday night," Knittle says.

Right now, AccuWeather is putting northern Delaware in the 6-12 inch range while the rest of Delaware sits in the 3-6 inch range.

But Knittle says they're keeping a close eye on the system because there are still some variables.

"We're not going to escape this system, but there is the chance that perhaps a little bit more warmer air tries to get in as this storm pushes its way a little bit further north, as the trend has been with some of our systems. So perhaps we can get the lower end of the amounts (of predicted snowfall) as we work our way into Monday."
