Freezing rain sticks around in the Poconos, Lehigh Valley and Berks County through the night as temps stay below freezing. That means extremely hazardous travel, power outages, and trees down. Travel is discouraged.

Precipitation will remain throughout much of the a.m. Tuesday. Rain could be heavy, at times. The melting of snow will likely cause some flooding.

Tuesday should bring some relief with dry and breezy conditions in the afternoon, but a similar situation may be setting up for Thursday into Friday.
