From 1 to 3 inches of snow and a bit of rain is forecast for most grassy and elevated surfaces. A few spots can get a bit more.
However, since the snow began when road surface temperatures were chilly there can be slippery and slushy spots, especially on bridges and in areas that are shaded from the sun on a clear day.
People should expect travel delays Tuesday. Motorists are advised to watch for icy spots, since some roads may not have been treated. (Photos.com image)
