The snow caused a few issues on the roadways, including a jackknifed tractor trailer on I-95 Southbound, that left some motorists stranded as they waited for the path to tweet.

A number of area schools have issued delayed openings as well. A full list can be found here: School Closings and Delays from FOX 29
