PHILADELPHIA - The morning snow gave way to a mostly cloudy, cold afternoon. Snowfall totals really depended on where you live: Blakeslee 9"; Allentown 3.1"; Reading 2.4"; Philadelphia .2"; Mount Holly 1.3"; Ewing 1"; Newark, DE 1.2"

TONIGHT: Skies are clear but it's very cold with a low of 17 in Philadelphia and some suburbs dipping down into the low teens.

THURSDAY: We expect a mostly sunny day, but it's still brisk and rather cold with a high around 35.

FRIDAY: Finally, we begin to emerge from our latest cold snap. While sunrise temperatures will still be in the 20s, the afternoon high improves to 43 with a good deal of sunshine.

SATURDAY: This is now looking like another largely sunny day with an even milder afternoon high of 53

SUNDAY: The big game arrives and the weather looks great for tailgaters with a mix of clouds and sun and a mild high of 53. For the NFC Championship game (kick-off at 6:40 p.m.) temperatures are expected to be around 46 at the start and only a few degrees cooler by the final whistle.
