Drivers beware, temperatures dropped below freezing overnight causing icy conditions north and west of Philadelphia -- and they'll stay slick for Thursday's morning commute.

Those areas saw snow showers late Wednesday and early Thursday morning, causing accidents on untreated roads -- including an accident that injured three people on an icy road in Quakertown, Bucks County and another crash in Lower Moreland that shut down Welsh Road during part of the morning commute.

The winter weather led Pennridge School District in Bucks County and the Antieam School District in Berks County, among others, to delay the start of the school day for two hours.

With temperatures hovering around the freezing mark and flurries still falling as the area starts to wake up, commuters are urged to use caution while driving. Some towns have asked PennDOT to come salt untreated streets in preparation for Thursday's morning rush.

Scattered snow showers will continue to fall in parts of the Delaware Valley, with more snow expected Thursday in portions of Berks and Chester counties.

High temperatures will near 40 degrees Thursday afternoon so the snow is unlikely to stick to area streets throughout the day.

Winds will make it feel even colder outside, but relatively milder weather is expected for the weekend. The chance of snow ends early Friday morning and temperatures start to push into the mid to high 40s on Saturday.
