Nor'easter delivers only glancing blow to Philadelphia region

Cars and pedestrians move slowly in Haddonfield during last week’s nor’easter. Today’s isn’t nearly as bad.

The third nor’easter in less than two weeks delivered only a glancing blow to the Philadelphia region while on its way to  pummeling of New England.

Unlike the two previous storms, this one — which dumped snow in parts of the south — the mix of snow and rain had little impact outside of making highways wet and slippery before quickly moving out of the area.

The forecast for the remainder of the day calls for mostly cloudy skies, with a high near 43. But it will feel colder as it will be breezy with northwest winds 14 to 20 mph, gusting up to 32 mph.

It’s a different situation in Boston, which was being hammered by a blizzard with up to a foot of snow expected.

One impact here from the nor’easter was that 73 flights between Philadelphia International and airports in New England have been cancelled. That figure includes 30 flights to or from Boston.

Amtrak also has canceled trains between New York City and Boston.
