Snow will affect the Pittsburgh area on Tuesday, while a major snowstorm clobbers the I-95 corridor. The snow will mark a dramatic change to much colder weather.

Snow and slow travel are in store over much of western Pennsylvania, northern West Virginia and southeastern Ohio Tuesday with the area on the northern and western fringe of heavy snow.

Increasing wind and dramatically lower temperatures will cause some blowing and drifting snow across the region.

Ice can form on paved and concrete surfaces beneath the snow, making travel by vehicle and foot very slippery.

Temperatures will hover in the teens during Tuesday and will fall to near zero Tuesday night as the wind increases. RealFeel® temperatures will plunge well below zero.

Very cold and windy weather will continue through much of the balance of the week.
