Ice, slush cause travel issues across the area

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Icy, slushy roads are greeting commuters in southern New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania, as Presidents Day snow melts and freezing rain transitions to rain.

Icy spots are possible on roadways and speed remains reduced on some sections of the Pennsylvania Turnpike and other roads around the region.

Fog is complicating the Tuesday morning commute in Allentown and other parts of the Poconos.

Some schools are closed and others are opening two hours late over the tricky travel conditions.

The Philadelphia International Airport has also experienced delays.

National Weather Service says rain and warmer temperatures are expected to melt the slush later Tuesday afternoon. However, the rain could cause some flooding.

Temperatures could climb to almost 60 degrees in Philadelphia.
