The greater Pittsburgh area tied its record low temperature on Tuesday night.

“We’re calling for a low tonight of somewhere in the low to mid teens,” said National Weather Service Meteorologist Matthew Kramer. “The Nov. 12 record low for the Pittsburgh area is 17 degrees. If we hit that before midnight, that would be a new record.”

The Pittsburgh area cooled down to 17 degrees around 11 p.m., according to Stephen Cropper, meteorologist at the Trib’s news partner, WPXI.

Additional cool weather overnight could also put the region close to a record low for Nov. 13, which is 13 degrees.

If the temperature does dip that low, Kramer said ice could become an issue despite the ground still being relatively warm.

“Re-freezing on untreated roads could be a concern,” he said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
