Play video An expert analysis on the snow threat is given in the above video.

As cold air lingers around Pittsburgh through midweek, a snow will graze the region.

High temperatures will be held to the 30s, which is more representative of a typical January day. A high around 53 F is more common this time of year.

While the storm delivering the snow on Tuesday will not evolve into a blizzard until after swinging well east of Pittsburgh, a coating to an inch is still expected.

Any snow that falls during the daytime Tuesday will have a difficult time accumulating on roads due to the effects of the strong March sun.

Temperatures are forecast to rebound to or above seasonable levels late in the week.
