A fast-moving snowstorm blew through the Philadelphia region late Friday afternoon, leaving minor accumulations and major rush-hour headaches. Moderate to heavy snowfall and below-freezing temperatures made navigating highways and side streets tricky and lengthened commutes considerably. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation reported speed-limit reductions across the state. By 7 p.m., SEPTA's Regional Rail lines were experiencing delays of up to 30 minutes because of slippery tracks, the transit agency said.
