Many parts of the NBC 10 viewing region are digging out following a winter storm that dropped anywhere from 2 to 8 inches of snow last night and early this morning.

The snow and weather conditions are causing traffic problems and hundreds of school delays or closings. In our area, about 800 school closings and delays were reported to NBC 10 by 9 a.m. Monday morning.

Public schools in Philadelphia were canceled Monday, as were schools of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.

The Philadelphia International Airport reported runways open and some delays.

Officials in the Philadelphia area reported mostly minor weather-related accidents Monday morning.

The NWS said 2 to 4 inches fell in the Lancaster and Philadelphia areas and 1 to 2 inches fell in the Reading and Allentown area. More snow fell south of Philadelphia.

Many more people than usual are taking New Jersey Transit today to Newark, Hoboken and New York. And so far, there are no reports of weather-related delays.

Rail station parking lots were filled before 7:00 a.m. And the trains will likely be packed again tonight as a wintry mix of rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow is expected to fall over most of the Garden State.

Motorists are slowly making their way along snow-covered streets and highways in central and southern New Jersey.

No major traffic problems or accidents have been reported this morning on the Garden State Parkway, New Jersey Turnpike or the Atlantic City Expressway toll roads.

But the snowy conditions have spurred turnpike officials to reduce the speed limit to 35 miles-per-hour between Exits 1 and 8. And it's down to 45 miles-per-hour from Exits 9 to 14.

Numerous spinouts and minor accidents were being reported throughout southern New Jersey, but traffic was moving in most areas. And hundreds of plows and sand and salt trucks are now out trying to keep roads passable.

Meanwhile, New Jersey Transit trains and buses are running on schedule. And the agency was cross-honoring tickets and passes.
