Winter Storm Watch in effect Thursday

It's been a relatively mild season so far, but you may see some wintry weather later today, depending on where you are in Delaware.

Meteorologist Danielle Knittle says some quick-moving precipitation is headed our way, with downstate bearing the brunt of it.

"Some smaller accumulations right around Wilmington here, perhaps an inch or so, but as you work your way further south towards Wilmington, Georgetown, you're looking at three to perhaps six inches of accumulation before wrapping up here later on tomorrow night," says Knittle.

The system should last for about six hours. Kent and Sussex Counties are under a Winter Storm Warning with anywhere from 2-6 inches expected Thursday afternoon into Friday.

But despite potential snow, sleet and rain, Knittle says there is a silver lining.

"Looking great Friday and Saturday with sunshine."
