FOR THE SECOND day in a row, Mayor Nutter closed city offices today as Winter Storm Pax continued to pummel the region overnight.
The School District of Philadelphia, Archdiocesan schools and Philadelphia courts are also closed today.
By last night, the storm had dropped more than 10 inches on Philadelphia and was expected to add additional layers of snow overnight, Nutter said.
Last night, the National Weather Service forecasted an accumulation of two to four inches overnight in Philadelphia.
The city remains under a snow emergency. That means that cars parked on snow emergency routes, which are designated with signs, will be ticketed or towed to make room for plows.
