Late night snow turned to freezing rain overnight in Philadelphia, as a storm expected to drop as much as a foot of snow onto the city ended up blanketing much of the area in a layer of ice and slush.

"In the final analysis, more warm air came in," Joe Miketta, the interim chief of the National Weather Serivce Office in Mount Holly, told the Inquirer's Tony Wood. "We didn't forecast it accurately."

"It feels like January," said Tyler Roys, a meteorologist with "We forget that this is March."

The Weather Channel's Paul Goodloe covers the storm from Penn's Landing. Though snow totals were lower than forecasts predicted, Goodloe was forced to contend with a fair amount of sleet, tweeting out earlier, "My face hurts." 

Chestnut Hill

Many shops along Germantown Avenue in Chestnut Hill are closed because of the storm. Julio Lamos braved the weather to keep the sidewalks clear, while upstate New York native Paula Riley donned her cross-country skis and glided around the neighborhood.

The campus was mostly empty Tuesday morning as trucks plowed snow along Locust Walk and workers shoveled entrances to academic and administrative buildings.

Wayne, Delaware County

In the 10 a.m. hour, roads in Wayne deteriorated. The only vehicles out seemed to be plows.

Most stores in Wayne were closed for business. Out There Outfitters was an exception. Manager Clifford Gilbert opened up expecting a few customers to come in looking for boots or snow pants. As of 10:30, no one had stopped to shop but he remained hopeful. "I think the roads are pretty treacherous," said Gilbert, who lives within walking distance. If no one shows, he planned to close early.

Ardmore, Montgomery County

Don't let the snow totals fool you: It's no joke out here. Thick, heavy, icy snow had encased cars in Haverford Township, and frozen stuff was falling pretty fast on the town's deserted streets around 9:30 a.m.

Cherry Hill, Camden County

Cherry blossoms encased in ice on a tree in Cherry Hill, N.J. February’s unseasonably warm temperatures helped push them into late stages of blooming, when the buds are most vulnerable. 

Camden, Camden County

PATCO was running an "emergency schedule," due to a downed tree near Haddonfield. Trains into the city from New Jersey are no longer operating on the 20-minute "snow schedule." Trains eastbound to Lindenwold are running late but operating.

Maple Shade, Burlington County

Main Street in Maple Shade looked like a ghost town much of the morning, with falling branches making driving around the area treacherous.

There are 500 miles of road in Burlington County, and the conditions were variable, said Eric Arpert, the county spokesman.

"Some roads are slippery and treacherous, and just because your roads may not be covered in snow, they may be slick, and other roads may be covered since the wind is blowing snow back onto plowed roads," Arpert said.  "It's imperative that everyone exercise caution and avoid travel as much as possible. "
