Snow adds several inches of white to St. Patrick's Day green in parts of Pennsylvania


PHILADELPHIA — A new storm in Pennsylvania's long, cold winter has added several inches of white to the green of St. Patrick's Day and made the season the second-snowiest on record in Philadelphia.

The National Weather Service says 4.5 inches fell at Philadelphia International Airport and almost as much as in neighboring Delaware County. Three inches was recorded in Montgomery County.

Four inches was also recorded in Franklin County and 3.6 inches in Adams County in central Pennsylvania, as well as 3.7 inches in Somerset County to the west.

The four and one-half inches recorded in Philadelphia as of 8 a.m. Monday boosted the total for the 2013-14 season to 67.4 inches so far, passing the 65.5 inches recorded in 1995-96.
