    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)

    Allentown got a foot of snow and we may see another inch or two by the time it tapers off in the city -- and even a sporadic snow shower into Saturday -- but the worst is behind us.

    Philadelphia's snow emergency officially ends at noon on Friday.

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

    Mass transit delays are expected throughout the day and the airport is touch-and-go -- some flights are coming in and taking off and others are cancelled.
