Cold Can't Stop Cheesesteak Cravings

It doesn't matter how bitter cold it is outside, true Philadelphians will stand in the cold to just to pick up the city's most delectable treat.

The snow blew out as the sun went down on Monday's March Snow Storm.

What a day! South Jersey got socked with the most snow, more than a foot in Vineland, New Jersey. It was the most snowfall in four years for that part of the region.

In Pa., 9.5 inches fell in Perkasie, Bucks County. That's the highest amount so far for the five Pa. counties in our area.

And in Delaware, Bear had 9.7 inches, the highest "official" total but our "unoffical" count from observers with the Eastern U.S. Weather Forum measured a foot of snow in Dover.

The storm moved through in three waves, creating traffic problems for drivers and air passengers.

At Philly International Airport, hundreds of flights were canceled. Around 5pm, conditions were starting to get better. But you're better off checking for delays before you head in that direction, whether you're picking up or flying out.

On the roads, we've had backups on the Schuylkill, the PA. Turnpike and even a 17-Mile backup on I-78 in Berks County.

Now we have to deal with the wind and the cold. Gusts up to 60 mph have been reported.

Temperatures will not get out of the 20s for the next two days, so only small amounts of snow will melt.

At night, temperatures will drop into the teens, and wind chills may drop to near zero.
