PHILADELPHIA -

FOX 29 Chief Meteorologist Scott Williams says the precipitation from Tuesday's storm has moved out of the area, but now the concern has turned to the Wednesday morning commute.

Since Tuesday morning, the storm has been a tale of two systems.

Earlier in the day, areas north and west of Philadelphia saw accumulating snow, but in Philadelphia, it was just a case of rain.

Heading into Tuesday night, Scott Williams says the concern will turn from rain and snow to black ice, as puddles along the roads may freeze in some areas.

Although there were no reports of any major weather related accidents, PennDOT crews are scheduled to salt Pennsylvania roads through the night.

Bucks, Montgomery counties

By Tuesday night, the snow and rain had wrapped up, but not before accumulating on the grass and roadways throughout both counties.

By around 1:30 p.m. in Montgomery County, FOX 29's Claudia Gomez reports a couple of inches of snow accumulated in Sanatoga, near the outlet mall and the nuclear power plant.

In Bucks County, FOX 29's Chris O'Connell reports the snow was more of an inconvenience for most drivers. However, in the north and west portions of the county, residents saw accumulating snow.

In Doylestown, the storm dropped more than three inches.

Drivers tell FOX 29 their drive home wasn't so bad.

South Jersey and Parts of Delaware:

In sections of South Jersey and Delaware, the storm brought mainly rain and wet roads for drivers.

By Wednesday, a cold shot of air is expected to follow with the rest of the week, which is looking cold and dry.
