    After up to 2 inches or more of snow fell throughout the Philadelphia region overnight, people faced a potentially slow ride to work or school Friday.

    The storm delayed dozens of area schools and even closed a few. Commuters and drivers will likely face slippery roads and travel delays as they maneuver through snow.

    As the snow fell, a tractor-trailer jackknifed along Interstate 95 southbound between Academy and Cottman leaving motorists stranded for about three hours as crews worked to clean up the mess. Luckily no injuries were reported. There were also five crashes in the same area on the northbound side.

    The delay in the driveway should be expected as should slippery spots on side streets. Major roadways appeared to be wet as well so give yourself extra time to get where you are going.

    Got a flight or need to catch a bus or train? Be sure to check to see if it's running on time before you head out the door.

    Expect the chill in the air to remain Friday despite improving conditions as temps barely get above freezing. More snow could fall Saturday as a system could clip the southern part of the Philadelphia region. Snowy Side Streets in PhiladelphiaSnowy Side Streets in Philadelphia
