Today's snowstorm dropped modest amounts of snow around the Philadelphia area, but closer to the shore they officially experienced blizzard conditions. The National Weather Service defines a blizzard as 35 mph winds, less than ¼ mile visibilities, and large amounts of blowing and drifting snow for at least 3 hours. Atlantic City Airport reported those conditions this morning before noon with over 12 inches of snow. As the snow showers pull away tonight, everyone across the area is going to have to deal with the backside of the storm. The next few days will be frigid. Highs in the teens and lows in the single digits will combine with 25-30 mph winds. Wind chills will be below 0. Stay warm and stay safe.

Philadelphia's Snow Emergency is over as of 8pm Thursday night. City government offices will be closed on Friday due to the extreme cold. The Code Blue remains in effect, call Homeless Outreach at 215-232-1984 if you see someone on the streets. All Philadelphia public and Archdiocesan schools will be closed again on Friday.

A woman was killed this morning on her way to work when her ride crashed into a SEPTA Regional Rail train in Montgomery County. It happened around 10 a.m. on the 300 block of Red Lion Road in Lower Moreland. The driver of the SUV was not able stop on the downhill leading up to the train crossing and slid through the barrier and onto the tracks. The driver managed to jump out of the vehicle but the passenger did not get out in time. She was thrown from the car during impact and died at the scene. The West Trenton line was suspended for a few hours during the investigation. This morning's snowstorm could have been a factor in the crash. The two women in the car have not been identified, but are co-workers.

The Pennsylvania Farm Show in Harrisburg has unveiled a sculpture made from a half-ton of butter ahead of the 102nd Farm Show (see below). Russell Redding, the state Agriculture Secretary, says it highlights the careers and roles the dairy industry plays in the state. There is a cow and farmer, an agronomist (who grows feed for cows), a milk processor, and a shopper with a basket. The butter is all scrap butter and will be taken to a farm and turned into energy with a methane digester. The butter sculpture has a been a tradition at the farm show since 1991. The show runs from Jan. 6 to Jan. 13. Information at: http://www.farmshow.pa.gov/Pages/default.aspx
