Fresh cold is setting the stage for the weekend to end on an icy note in Pittsburgh.

The worst of the winter storm headed to the Northeast will bypass Pittsburgh. However, a bit of an icy mix will still glaze the city from the midday through the evening hours of Sunday.

The icy mix will consist of snow--accumulating a coating to an inch during the day--and freezing rain, both of which could cause some untreated roads and sidewalks to turn slippery.

Those heading to Heinz Field to watch the city's Steelers host the Miami Dolphins in the early afternoon should use caution.

Temperatures will spend most of Sunday in the 20s, but will rise at night and allow the icy mix to change to plain rain late at night and for the Monday morning commute.
