    The next winter storm will hit the Pittsburgh area Tuesday night into Wednesday with a new round of travel delays and disruptions to daily activities. Another storm is due on Sunday.

    While the storm Sunday night began as spotty rain and changed to snow, the midweek storm will start off as snow, then is forecast mix with and change to ice and rain locally.

    Travel conditions will deteriorate late Tuesday evening and the commute Wednesday morning may still be slow, slippery and hazardous, especially north and east of the city.

    Enough snow and wintry mix will fall to shovel and plow.

    Where the change to sleet, freezing rain and plain rain is delayed or does not occur over the northern and eastern suburbs to the Laurel Mountains, a heavy amount of snow is in store.

    Where the snow changes to more freezing rain rather than sleet, there is a risk of downed tree limbs and sporadic power outages.

    Enough rain and melting snow can occur south of the city to cause flash and urban flooding problems Wednesday morning.
