A winter storm that nearly everyone hopes will be the last for a long time blanketed the Philadelphia region in snow. It left six-plus inches of snow in some areas.

In hard-hit areas, 7 inches has been measured in Warminster and Bucks County and 6.6 inches in Burlington Township in Burlington County, New Jersey, with accumulations around 4 to 6 inches common elsewhere. Officially, 2.2 has been measured at Philadelphia International Airport, bringing the seasonal total to 25.2.

Most of the snow was piling atop grass and metal surfaces, however, some slush formed on roads.

The storm has affected operations at the airport and and prompted some schools to close early or to cancel after-school programs.

A winter weather advisory is in effect until 2 a.m. Saturday.

"Whatever accumulates, it's melting tomorrow," said Gary Szatkowski, chief meteorologist at the National Weather Service's regional office in Mount Holly.
