Pittsburgh: Slippery Travel Tuesday

Another snowfall is in the works for Pittsburgh through Tuesday.

Lingering cold air set the stage for a fast-moving storm originating from the Canada Prairies that brought a general 1-3 inches of snow to the region. 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 Tuesday, especially during the morning drive.

After a lull during the middle of the day, a second quick burst of snow and slippery travel is possible later 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 moderate snow to New York City and heavier snow across eastern New England, including in Boston.

Temperatures are forecast to trend above normal late this week into this weekend as storms with rain and perhaps fog move in.
