Snow accumulation estimates in Philadelphia fall short of projections

Charles Mostoller

The snow emergency in Philadelphia was lifted 12 hours after it started.

Snow accumulation projections, set by the National Weather Service, fell dramatically below expectations.

As of 10 p.m. Monday, the projected inch-count hovered between 10 and 14 inches. As of 7 a.m. Tuesday, a little more than an inch of snow coated roads and sidewalks.

Suspended SEPTA buses will resume to full service this morning.

Roads are still slippery, and motorists should take caution during morning commutes.
