In case you were wondering the National Weather Service says Winter Storm Janus dumped a foot of snow on Philadelphia and even more is some areas.  The concern right now is the bitter cold. With the temperatures only getting up to 14 and a wind chill making it feel more like -14 we have some hazardous conditions to consider.

First off - the bone chilling cold means salt and brine are having little effect on the roads.  Crews worked all night to clear the main arteries but expect packed snow and even ice on the secondary and side streets.

All government office in Philadelphia are closed. Bucks, Montgomery and Delaware County are opening their offices two hours late.

If you parked your car on a snow emergency route you can find out where it is by calling 215-686-SNOW.  Since a snow emergency was declared in Philadelphia, property owners have until six hours after the snow fall ends to clear a path of at least three feet on sidewalks.

If a street needs plowing or salting call 311.

SEPTA - All Regional Rail lines are scheduled to operate but there will be likely detours and delays on bus routes.  To find out more call 215-580-7800 or go to

Paratransit will be running but to check on status or cancel a trip call 215-580-7720.

Airport - flights have been cancelled at Philadelphia International Airport.  To find out the status of a flight call 800-PHL-GATE or go to

If you've got cabin fever follow #openinphl to see what's open.

I'll be updating this page throughout the day.

Stay safe and stay warm!
