A snowstorm affected northeastern Pennsylvania and the I-80/I-81 corridors Saturday and into Saturday night, causing travel delays.

Snow has since ended, leaving a general 4 to 8 inches across the area with locally higher amounts. With the snow tracking off over New England, the rest of the weekend looks to be dry.

At its peak, the snow fell at the rate of close to an inch per hour.
