Pa. Digs Out As High, Frigid Winds Settle In

Posted: Updated:

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Highways across Pennsylvania were largely clear as the first winter storm of 2014 scattered a few inches across much of the state and ushered in frigid temperatures and strong, bone-chilling winds.

Most school children were being asked to attend school Friday two hours late, and Gov. Tom Corbett told state employees to report two hours late. Meanwhile, maintenance workers and plow drivers were working overtime.

Some pre-dawn temperatures were in the single digits, and many secondary roads were plowed but icy.

In Philadelphia, Interstate 95 southbound is closed at Broad Street due to a jackknifed tractor trailer. Your alternate is Platt Bridge. Meanwhile, the National Weather Service is warning that gusts of up to 30 miles per hour could bring wind chills to minus 25 degrees.

Viewers all around the area are sending in their photos, you can view some of them in the slide show above.
