Just when it was getting a little warm snow is being forecast for tomorrow.

The National Weather Service says Delaware should expect a mix of snow and rain to hit the peninsula on Saturday night.

But any accumulation is expected to melt away from Sunday.

The Wilmington News Journal reports that forecasters say there could be 2-to-3 inches of snow in northern Delaware.

Southern and Central Delaware could be less than 1-inch of accumulation.

But by Sunday the temperatures should be in the 40s enough to get rid of any remaining snow.

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Insurance company Highmark will start to limit the number of opioids new patients can be prescribed.

The News Journal of Wilmington reports the restrictions will start March 8. The company's Thursday announcement says people in need of opioids due to an acute accident or procedure will only get a seven-day supply. Those in need of long-term pain management, such as cancer patients, will not be affected by the restriction.

Supporters of legislation that would ease restrictions on the craft beer industry held a forum at the Salisbury University Art Gallery yesterday afternoon.

Len Foxwell, chief of staff for Comptroller Peter Franchot, stressed the need to end the restrictions that tied craft producers to distributors.

In addition, the measure would lift production limits at the breweries.

Meanwhile, there is another measure that would return many of the restrictions that had been eased by last year’s legislation.

Black Panther is a film that's not only hot but historic. It's based on the Marvel comic of the same name and is directed by Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station, Creed). According to Fandango, pre-sale tickets for the film have already surpassed that of any previous superhero movie ever.

In the height of ski season this year, blades of grass and patches of dirt still dot cross country ski trails in Aspen, Colo. Conditions like this present a conundrum for professional skiers: Their livelihood relies on snow and cold temperatures, but essentials like travel and snow-making come with an environmental cost.
