A large but disorganized storm moved out of our area Wednesday morning after it dropped more than half a foot of snow in western parts of the Philadelphia region but it left some slippery conditions.

The snow first moved into our area Monday night and then fell sporadically throughout the day Tuesday. The most intense part of the storm occurred during the evening commute Tuesday. Lingering snow showers came to an end overnight. Some areas north and west of Philadelphia that saw most of the snow could see icy spots on untreated roads, including areas in Chester County.

Some snow showers lingered Wednesday morning causing some icy spots and minor accidents on some roads. The light snow won't last long and should be gone before noon, said the First Alert Weather Team.

Dozens of schools took precautions by closing or sending students home early Tuesday then dozens more opened late Wednesday.

Tidal flooding was also a problem at the Jersey Shore where high tide brought flooding to Wildwood Tuesday morning. Motorists were also urged to use caution around the Philadelphia region due to slick driving conditions.
