Nearly Foot of Snow Leaves Slippery Roads, School Closures

Many area schools remained closed Friday morning as the region dug out in record-cold temperatures after nearly a foot of snow fell.

More than 10 inches fell in parts of Delaware, Chester, Lehigh and Montgomery counties; and nearly 9 inches fell in Philadelphia Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.

All Philadelphia School District schools and Philadelphia Archdiocese schools were closed again Friday along with hundreds of other schools and districts.

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority continued to suspend service on a handful of bus routes because roads weren't considered safe in some areas Friday.

The snowfall is gone but the new issue is bitter cold temperatures that caused refreezing on roads overnight as temperatures dropped to single digits in parts of the area — breaking records Friday morning.

Records were broken in Wilmington (8 degrees), Atalantic City (8), Allentown (3) and Reading (6).

We'll stay dry Friday with sunshine and highs in the mid-20s. Then we're finally in for a warm-up over the weekend with highs in the mid-40s Sunday and mid-50s by the middle and end of next week.
