PITTSBURGH (AP) - Warmer than normal temperatures have kept a major winter storm from dumping snow on Pittsburgh and much of southwestern Pennsylvania, but PennDOT has lowered speed limits in other parts of the state where snow fell, or where falling temperatures could cause already wet roads to freeze.

The speed limits on Interstates 78, 81, 84, 95 and 99 have been lowered to 45 mph.

In and around Pittsburgh, temperatures were in the high 30s, but forecast to fall into the 20s and teens later in the day.

In Punxsutawney, about 65 miles northeast of the city, a steady rain before dawn turned to light snow as the world- famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, emerged from his lair about dawn to predict six more weeks of winter.
