Story Highlights
  • The Shore region received the most amounts of snow Tuesday night.
  • Seven inches of snow fell near Atlantic City.
  • Philadelphia International Airport only recorded one inch of snow.

This winter's cycle continues: Bitter cold, followed by snow, or snow followed by bitter cold.

The Philadelphia region along the I-95 corridor saw anywhere from one to four inches of snow overnight, with the Shore region receiving the highest - up to 7 inches near Atlantic City.  Delaware saw five inches or more in some areas.

The storm began producing snow around 11 p.m. It began moving moving away from Philadelphia shortly after 5 a.m., and left the coast after 7 a.m. as it made its way out to sea.

As a result, government offices in Atlantic County delayed their opening until 10 a.m. and senior centers were closed.

    Today should turn sunny with a high of only 24. Lows will dip to around 13 overnight.

    Thursday will see another sunny day and a high of 27.

    The good news is that weekend temperatures should warm significantly. We'll see a high of about 40 on Friday and a high of 46 on Saturday. 

    Temperatures could reach 45 on Super Bowl Sunday, although it will be mostly cloudy.  There's a slight chance of rain or snow at night.  But, as of now, the chance is low.
