Patch took to the streets of Levittown after the winter storm. Check out our photos and add your own!
After an overcast day of light rain and sleet, snow began falling Friday night in Levittown.
After days of hype, Levittown awoke to find a healthy covering of heavy, wet snow outside. The storm dumped several inches of snow by early Saturday morning. Local municipal, state and private crews worked to clear local roads and parking lots. The streets of Langhorne Borough and Maple Avenue in Middletown Township were partly clear just after midnight Saturday. As the snow picked up, it became evident road crews began to have trouble keeping the streets clear. The storm put the county under a winter storm warning and forced local school districts to cancel events. The overnight snow is part of a larger system which has crippled major cities like Boston and New York with more than a foot of snow.

The latest forecast for Levittown greatly increased the amount of snow predicted in this weekend's winter storm. Crews in Falls and Middletown say they are ready for the storm.

Last week's weather yo-yo gets replaced by an active pattern with a pair of clippers and perhaps a larger storm on Friday.
Believe it or not, we've had accumulating snow on four occasions around the region over the past week. Those accumulating snows have generally amounted to very little -- an inch here, a few tenths there. This week brings more of the same to start -- a couple of weak systems on Monday night and again on Wednesday morning that could bring an inch or two of snow to parts of the region. These fast-moving, moisture-short clippers don't drop much snow usually, although with enough dynamics some spots can get a fair amount of snow (such as Cape May this past Friday). These two systems won't be as dynamic as that system but snow showers, or periods of light snow are possible. Attention then turns to a possible stronger storm on Friday. Modeling…
