PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Transportation officials say speed restrictions on some Pennsylvania roads and bridges have been lifted or eased, but people are being warned about the dangers of bone-chilling temperatures overnight.

Speed restrictions on highways reduced to 45 mph have been lifted, and the speed limit on Delaware River Port Authority bridges has been raised from 25 mph to 35 mph.

But wind chill warnings are now in effect in many areas, with temperatures in the single digits to near zero expected in some areas, falling to below zero overnight - with wind chills estimated at 20 to 35 degrees below zero.

The National Weather Service says as much as 9 inches of snow was reported in Sullivan County and 7 inches in Cambria County, with up to 4½ inches in eastern Pennsylvania.
