The winter storm that ambushed the Philadelphia region with more than expected snow has moved away from the area but some of its impacts linger. Here's the latest of what you might need to know.

Mass Transit

Service on SEPTA's Paoli-Thorndale Regional Rail Line is resuming service after being suspended since Thursday night after trees took down power lines for the trains.

Commuters on other rail lines should be prepared for delays due to slippery rails and possible switch problems.


Some schools in Philadelphia's Pennsylvania suburbs closed for the day while many others opened 2-hours late. A list can be found at 6ABC.


Hundreds of people spent the night stuck in their vehicles on I-78 near Allentown after accidents and snow made the roadway impassable. They have since started to move slowly after State Police sounded sirens and knocked on doors to awaken sleeping drivers. At about the same time a burst of thunder rumbled through the area. Drivers should avoid the highway until it is cleared.

Roads in the immediate Philadelphia area are slushy and wet and officials say motorists should exercise caution.


More than 200 flights to and from Philadelphia International Airport were canceled Thursday and hundreds more were delayed, leading to residual delays and additional cancellations this morning. Passengers are advised to check with their airlines on flight status.


It will be mostly sunny and breezy for the remainder of the day today with a high near 44. The winds will be from the west at 14 to 21 mph. It will be mostly clear tonight with a low around 33. For Philadelphia Marathon Weekend, it will be sunny Saturday, with a high near 47. On Sunday it should be partly sunny, with a high near 46. There's  chance of  rain and snow showers overnight Sunday into Monday, but it should be partly sunny during the day with a high near 48.
