    Winds are the big problem and we'll see one-to-two inches of snow before it tapers off and possibly have scattered snow showers into the weekend. (Published Friday, Feb. 26, 2010)

    The slick morning commute is behind us. We still have blowing snow and howling winds to deal with Friday, but the worst is over.

    We could get one to two more inches of snow in the Philadelphia area and scattered snow showers into Saturday.

    The snow is expected to taper off later in the day, possibly as early as noon.

    With the storm winding down, the snow emergency in Philadelphia ends at noon.

    Hundreds of schools are closed and we do have other cancellations and delays as well.

    Expect delays with mass transit and the airport is touch-and-go -- some flights are coming in and taking off and others are cancelled. By now you know the drill -- if you don't have to head out, stay home. If you do, check schedules before you go.

    Philadelphia's Office of Emergency Management is asking people to use public transportation if possible, use extreme caution if you have to drive, shovel your sidewalks and check on your neighbors. You can follow them on Twitter.
