Storm Brings Several Inches Of Snow To Most In Pa.

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

Forecasters say the latest winter storm brought several inches of snow to most areas of Pennsylvania, but as much as half a foot to some places in the commonwealth.

The National Weather Service says 2.7 inches was reported at Philadelphia International Airport following the four- to five-hour snowfall, with several inches also reported in suburban counties.

Observers reported four inches in Centre, Clearfield and Blair counties, five inches in Ebensburg in Cambria County and as much as 6.5 inches in Somerset County.

The new snowfall comes with thousands still without power in central and southeastern Pennsylvania following last week's ice storm.

FOX 29's Steve Keely was in Tredyffrin Township where such a case is happening. The power lines are down and in the process of getting fixed, but now there are lots and lots of ice, making the roads hard to drive through. This will delay efforts to restore power.

FOX 29's Drew Dickman was in Upper Darby, Delaware County. There is less ice and more slush. Everyone is sick of the snow!

"We had a nice winter, good long one. Take care of all the ones we've missed," said on person waiting for the bus. He had a very positive outlook.

"I'm sick of the snow, ...but nothing to cry about, mother nature is mother nature," said another resident.

Drew tells FOX 29 that this is his first winter in our area. He loves the reporting, but definitely hopes the snow goes away soon too :)

New Jerseyans are starting another week shoveling snow and brushing off their cars.

A fast-moving storm Sunday left behind as much as 3 inches of snow in parts of the state.

Most highways are clear. But local roads may have a coating of snow and ice. Motorists are advised to use caution because of slippery spots.

Temperatures are expected to remain below normal.

Forecasters say a strong winter storm is possible Wednesday night into Thursday. The potential exists for 6 inches or more, but the exact track of the storm remains uncertain.
