As expected, light snow fell in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware during the Friday morning rush and continued into midday.
The snowy conditions lasted into the early afternoon, as a line of snow passes through the region and drops to the southeast. The snow exited the Lehigh Valley, Berks, and the suburbs first, around noon.
The main line of snow exited Philadelphia around 1 p.m. and should leave the shore by 2 to 3 p.m. Following the steady snow, scattered snow showers with some brief-lived strong snow squalls are possible in the afternoon late day hours.
Stick with the NBC10 First Alert Weather Team for the latest on the nuisance that should slow commutes.
Half a foot of snow fell in parts of the Poconos with more than 5 inches in the Lehigh Valley and 4 inches in Montgomery County.
The snow did cause a handful of school closings, dismissals and delays.
The area dries for the weekend, but very cold air remains. It will also be windy Friday through Saturday.
