Snow, windy conditions impacted many across the Philadelphia region

People took their time as the visibility quickly got worse, causing white-out conditions.
MILFORD TOWNSHIP, Pennsylvania (WPVI) -- Rain quickly changed over to snow across the Philadelphia region Saturday morning.

From 60 degrees down to 30, people say they thought the snow was done for the season, but Mother Nature had different plans.

"We really weren't expecting this amount of snow right now," said Zachary Thomas of Bethlehem.

The shift to snow, bitter cold temperatures, and blistering strong winds came in fast. Backroads were slick and snow-covered, and Route 309 in Quakertown wasn't much better.

People took their time as the visibility quickly got worse, causing white-out conditions.

"It's just really hard to see. It's really foggy," said Yeami Kousari, who was on her way to Philadelphia for a party.

Bob Andreozzi of West Chester told Actions News he prefers the sunshine from Friday, not snow.

It wasn't just any snow day. It was the first of many for baby Evelyn.

Her mother, Derbyshire, says she just turned 4-months-old as of Saturday and is enjoying the view of the snow for the first time.
