In terms of snow, it was a matter of elevation -- Tobyhanna picked up four inches last night and High Point in New Jersey picked up 2.5". Some of the hillier locations in the outer burbs picked up coating to an inch type accumulations but for the majority of the suburbs, it was merely a quick hit of flakes at the tail end of the storm as drier air beat out the coldest of the air. Snow was reported to Doylestown and in Pottstown in the final hour or so of the event, around Midnight. Farther west, the Central PA mountains picked up anywhere from three to six inches along the spine of the Appalachians near Altoona.
