PITTSBURGH (AP) - Relatively light snow across Pennsylvania - and frigid temperatures in the western half of the state - were delaying schools, but causing few major problems for commuters.

Except for higher elevations, the worst of the snow fell in areas south of Pittsburgh, which received up to 5 inches. Still, most schools in those areas opted to delay classes two hours instead of closing on Friday. Dozens of other school districts in western Pennsylvania also delayed classes, but that was more because of single-digit morning temperatures and below-zero wind chills than the 1 to 2 inches of snow that fell in most areas.

Philadelphia and other areas of Pennsylvania were also seeing widespread school delays and snowfall of 3 inches or less. Temperatures in Philadelphia were just below freezing Friday morning.
