Weather Authority: Chilly, windy Friday follows rare fall snow

A rare pre-Thanksgiving snowfall mixed in with rain and sleet created quite a mess across the Delaware Valley Thursday night.

Winter is still five weeks away on the calendar, but this wintry blast in fall made for a messy commute home for thousands of drivers.

Philadelphia and Delaware counties saw between 2-4 inches of snow, Chester County got between 3-5 inches while Burlington, Camden, Gloucester counties saw between 3-4 inches.


The wintry mix left roadways slick causing a number of cars and buses to spin out, creating traffic issues on several major roadways. All travel was tricky on Thursday, at 30th Street Station a majority of trains were either delayed or canceled due to the storm. Many of those delays continued Friday morning.
