Pennsylvania escaped the brunt of the winter storm that slammed the Northeast, but some areas received half a foot of snow or more.
The National Weather Service says 7 inches of snow was reported at Summit Hill in Carbon County and 6 inches in Sciota and Stroudsburg in Monroe County as well as in Pen Argyl and Plainfield Township in Northampton County.
The weather in Pittsburgh was relatively calm last night, but the region still felt ripples from the massive snowstorm.
Megabus announced the cancellation of routes going to or from cities such as New York and Washington, D.C. Numerous flights from Pittsburgh to cities in the Northeast are cancelled as well, with the three New York airports and Boston's Logan Airport shut down.
More than 23 inches of snow had fallen in Connecticut as of Saturday morning, with up to 3 feet expected in Boston.
The storm is blamed for four deaths in New York and Canada.
Pittsburgh is forecast to be cloudy today, with temperatures hovering in the mid-20s. Sunday is expected to be warmer, with a high of 48 degrees.
Utility companies serving eastern and northeastern Pennsylvania reported only scattered outages by midday Saturday.
Philadelphia International Airport reported 160 cancelled flights Saturday related to the situation in New England, but otherwise normal operations. Spokeswoman Victoria Lupica says about 32 stranded passengers overnight were given sleeping mats, blankets, food and other assistance.
A number of accidents on snow-covered roads were reported, but no major crashes or road closures. The Associated Press contributed to this article.
