Philadelphia: More Snow to Graze the Area Tuesday

Another snowfall is in the works for Philadelphia on Tuesday.

Lingering cold air will set the stage for a fast-moving storm originating from the Canada Prairies to bring a coating to 2 inches of snow across the area. The Winter Weather Center has the latest regional snow map.

Roads and sidewalks will be chilly enough to allow some of the snow to stick, making for slippery travel by vehicle and foot on Tuesday, especially during the morning.

After a lull during the middle of the day, a second quick burst of snow is possible late in day on Tuesday that could include part of the evening rush hour.

Flight delays due to slippery runways, poor visibility and deicing are possible.

The same storm will bring heavier snow across eastern New England, including in Boston.

Temperatures are forecast to trend to near normal later this week, then above normal this weekend as storms with rain and perhaps fog move in.
