    We'll see gradual clearing today and a big warm-up with sunny skies starting this weekend.

    A little more than a week after managing to avoid the worst that Hurricane Sandy had to offer, Pennsylvania was dealt a glancing blow by a nor'easter that moved up the coast.
     
    Philadelphia's northern suburbs got the worst of the snow Wednesday night, seeing at least two inches in Langhorne, Bucks County.

    Utility and transportation officials were keeping a wary eye on the storm in Sandy's wake, but major roadways were clear as of Thursday morning.
     
    The wintry storm added slightly to the difficulty for utility companies just recovering from record outages brought by Sandy. FirstEnergy and PPL reported a total of 415 customers without power early Thursday, and Peco reported only scattered outages.

    Parts of New Jersey, however, weren't so lucky. Utility crews there are facing more power outages after Wednesday's storm. They say that nearly 401,000 homes are without power, some of those are households that just had service restored after Hurricane Sandy.

    Transportation crews are also working hard Thursday morning, out with plows and salt-spreaders clearing the major highways. Speed restrictions are in effect on the Garden State Parkway and New Jersey Turnpike.
