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.

Philadelphia International Airport only recorded one inch of snow, but totals in the region varied. Snow was heaviest south and east, with Pleasantville, Atlantic County, recording 7.3 inches.

Temperatures dropped to about 13 overnight, according to the National Weather Service's Mount Holly office.  The snow did not appear to be causing widespread school cancellations or closures.

The forecast:

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.
