Snow Leaves Messy Commute

Snow moved in Wednesday night and caused slippery road conditions for the Thursday morning commute

Winter is still a week away but you'd think it was already here given the recent weather. Light snow moved in Wednesday night leaving slippery roads and sidewalks for the Thursday morning commute, so be careful on the road. 

Dozens of area schools opened late Thursday due to the snow.

The snow moved into the western part of Pennsylvania Wednesday afternoon and hit Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs between 8 and 10 p.m.

By 6 a.m., most of snow had moved out with some lingering flurries remaining.

Much of the Philadelphia region saw about 1 inch of snow. (Get snow totals) Parts of Montgomery County, the Lehigh Valley and the Poconos got 2 inches or more with Pocono Summit coming out on top with 3 inches of snow.

NBC10 First Alert Weather meteorologist Bill Henley says the snow will be moving out but cold temps will remain.

Along with the snow, dangerously cold temperatures swept the region Wednesday and continued into the night.

The dangerous cold only lasts through Thursday morning but high temps will only get into the 30s into the weekend before a warm-up to the 40s by Sunday.
