A storm that dropped several inches of snow Monday has left many wondering when it will begin to feel like spring.

Drivers were greeted with snow during the morning commute and wet, slushy conditions on the drive home Monday night.

In Philadelphia, FOX 29 Meteorologist Caitlin Roth says 1.1 inches of snow fell in the area, but due to the above freezing temperatures, much of it didn't stick to the roadways. In Atlantic City, 1.9" of snow fell at the airport, which marks a record for March 25.

Snow totals around our area:

 - Glenmoore, Pa.: 4.5"

 - Royersford, Pa.: 3.8"

 - Hockessin, Del. 3.3"

 - Newport, N.J.: 3.0"

 - Philadelphia, Pa.: 1.1"

By Monday night, only some lingering showers remained for the Philadelphia area, as much of the snow had made its way to the Jersey Shore and parts of Delaware. By 2 a.m. Tuesday, the storm is expected to have moved out of our area.
