The snow moved in quickly Friday afternoon and moved out just as fast.

Snow & Ice Threat on Monday

"We've been predicting all week that this was not going to be a big storm, but would affect the Friday evening rush hour and stick because it's so cold. It behaved almost exactly like it was supposed to," said NBC10 Chief Meteorologist Glenn "Hurricane" Schwartz.

Snow Totals

Drivers across the region faced a slower commute and accidents were reported on major roadways. The major highways were okay after the snow moved out, but side streets around the region were slippery.

The best news may be that you won't break your back or hurt your heart shoveling.

"It's very unusual snow for this part of the country. It's more like what you see in Colorado or Utah. People will be able to brush it off their cars with their hands and sweep it off the driveway with a brook," Schwartz said.

Oh, and forget about trying to build a snowman!

King of Prussia got the most snow with 3.2 inches. At Philadelphia International Airport, 1.5 inches fell. 

The storm could disrupt the evening rush home. Here is a more specific timetable:

Time What to Expect
3 to 6 p.m. Snow develops West into Philadelphia
6 to 10 p.m. Accumulating snow spreads East in N.J.
10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Light snow ends West to East

 

Expect a breezy and cold, but dry Saturday.

Much nicer temperatures are expected Sunday with more sun, less wind and temperatures above freezing.

Next week temperatures will reach 50 Tuesday and possibly up to 60 by Wednesday.

But cold, and possibly Arctic air, should return starting Thursday.
