A significant winter storm with snow, sleet and rain affected the Philadelphia area into Saturday night, causing travel delays.

All of the precipitation has moved off to the north and east of the city overnight, giving way to a dry end to the weekend.

Very little snow accumulations were seen in the city, with accumulations of a coating to an inch. However, accumulations of up to 3 inches were seen across Delaware County, with accumulations of a little under 6 inches in parts of Bucks County.

A much heavier accumulation of snow fell across the interior Northeast with this storm, when compared to the Philadelphia area.
