Latest storm brings more snow to East Coast

There's more than six inches of additional snow on the ground today in parts of Pennsylvania. It was dumped by a quick-moving storm that prompted Pennsylvania Turnpike officials to reduce speed limits along the entire system.

Those limits have now been lifted, except in the area outside Philadelphia where a series of crashes last week injured 30 people and left cars stranded for miles.

The storm brought "thundersnow" -- an area of heavy snow with embedded thunder -- to the Pittsburgh area.

Many East Coast states are getting three to six inches of snow today, after the storm moved in overnight from the Great Lakes and through the Mid-Atlantic. Some areas are seeing rain, sleet or a snow-rain mixture as the storm moves up the coast.

Forecasters say temperatures above freezing today should increase into the 40s to the mid-50s for the rest of the week, giving people a break from the shoveling and the shivering.

Yesterday, several inches of snow fell across the Great Lakes, causing Chicago's two airports to cancel more than 1,000 flights.
