Nor'easter moves out as temperatures fall

- There may not have been a blizzard in Philadelphia but snow, wind and rain all over the region are causing problems and dangerous conditions.

The powerful Nor'easter shrunk in size but is just as intense as it heads north to New York and New England.

The main steady precipitation ended at about noon. As of 1pm, King of Prussia had almost 6 inches of snow and Philadelphia got 5 inches.

The wrap-around precipitation will continue until 3-6pm. It'll likely be snow because temperatures have dropped since the morning and they will continue to fall.

Mount Pocono got 23 inches of snow and Wilkes-Barre got 20 inches as of early Tuesday afternoon. In fact, Mount Pocono could get as much at 30 inches by 8pm.

Many areas got wind gusts of more than 50mph. Midday Tuesday, sustained winds were 25mph in Philadelphia, higher in New Jersey, and less north and west of the city.

Earlier blizzard Warnings were lifted for Philadelphia’s northern and western suburbs, but parts of the Lehigh Valley and Poconos did have whiteout conditions due to blowing snow.

Snow totals are on the lower end due to higher temperatures and mixing with sleet. That cut down the accumulation but slush and icing are problems, and all areas will see a refreeze overnight. Most areas saw snow, sleet and rain at different parts of the morning.

You may want to stay home and avoid unnecessary travel. Seeing asphalt may be deceiving and because there could be ice on top. Refreezing is also a possibility this evening

Philadelphia canceled its snow emergency at 1pm.
