PennDOT advises drivers to be cautious in storm: Walter Perez reports on Action News at 4 p.m., January 8, 2018 (WPVI)

A wintry mix of light snow, sleet and freezing rain is supposed to arrive across the region just in time for the evening commute Monday.

The result could be a pretty messy scene for the ride home.

Officials from PennDOT said they are not brining the roads beforehand, primarily because of all the residual material already on the roadways in the wake of winter weather events over the past few weeks.

And so the request is for all commuters to exercise a little patience, and let the salt truck operators do their jobs.
