    Chris Cimino's weather forecast for Tuesday, Jan. 18th

    The National Weather Service is advising motorists around the tri-state to be alert for pockets of freezing rain or drizzle in the overnight hours.

    Precipitation that began as snow and freezing rain late Monday turned to rain as temperatures rose during the daylight hours Tuesday.

    But not before more than 400 flights were canceled at the three New York area airports and morning commuters had to endure mass transit delays and slick, slushy highways.

    It was all part of a storm that brought a mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain that iced roads and runways from Washington, D.C., to northern New England.

    The Weather Service says there's a possibility of more snow Thursday night into Friday, followed by much colder temperatures for the weekend.
