PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A storm that prompted school closures, lower speed limits and airport delays in Pennsylvania is expected soon to taper off.

Authorities have raised speeds again on some interstates. reports inbound planes to Philadelphia International Airport are delayed about 90 minutes due to snow and ice. That's down from about four hours earlier.

The National Weather Service reports snow totals in eastern Pennsylvania range from about 3 inches at the Philadelphia airport to about 8 inches in outer suburbs. The airport in Allentown also got about 8 inches.

Around Harrisburg, the Legislature canceled voting sessions after several inches of snow fell. Some county offices closed; scattered power outages were reported.

Philadelphia closed its public schools. The weather service predicts another storm will hit the region beginning Tuesday night.
