Weather Authority: Snow, ice and rain Tuesday in Round 2 of wintry conditions

Our second round of winter weather in two days has caused more than one hundred area schools to open late or even close for the day Tuesday.

Depending on where you live, the second system that passed through overnight brought snow, rain or a wintry mix.

No matter what kind of precipitation you woke up to this morning, expect your morning commute to be impacted. By Tuesday night, ice is expected to linger north of I-95 before changing to rain.
Monday brought a few inches of snow to parts of the area that could create slick spots.

A Winter Storm Advisory is in effect for Berks, Lehigh, Western Montgomery and Upper Bucks counties.
