PHILADELPHIA – Ice-glazed roads are making for a tricky commute during the morning rush around the Philadelphia area, while snowfall in parts of the Poconos and in western Pennsylvania was causing travel headaches.


A wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain Wednesday morning should transition into rain by afternoon. Some roads in and out of Philadelphia are icy and drivers are urged to slow down and use caution.

The Poconos could see up to 6 inches of snow, mixing with sleet.

A winter storm warning is in effect until 6 p.m. in a number of western Pennsylvania counties. Butler and Beaver Falls could see more than 10 inches of snow.
