Winter Storm Warning Issued For Area

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Winter Storm Warnings and advisories remains in effect for much of western Pennsylvania as another round of wintry weather heads our way.

The warning has been issued for Sunday afternoon through Tuesday night.

According to the National Weather Service, a wintry mix will begin falling Saturday night and that will change over to snow by Sunday afternoon.

Snow showers are expected Sunday night into Monday morning.

“I think it gets here sometime after midnight, and then sticks around as rain probably through one o’clock or two o’clock [Sunday]. Then, as the cold front goes through, cold air pours in behind it and that will change the rain over to snow,” said KDKA’s Jon Burnett. “I don’t think accumulation totals are going to be immense, but they’ll get your attention, especially for that Monday morning commute.”

He says the heaviest concentrations of snowfall will be well north of our area.

“We’ll get a little more than a nuisance snow,” Burnett said. “It’ll keep coming in the form of lake effect snow showers, really, right into Tuesday and early Wednesday before things shut down.”

From Sunday through Tuesday, Burnett expects four to six inches around Lake Erie and three to five inches for the rest of the area.

High winds are also expected to accompany the storm. On Sunday, winds are expected to be around 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 35 mph.

A Winter Storm Warning  is in effect for the following counties:

Maryland: Garrett

Pennsylvania: Cambria, Crawford and Somerset

A lake-effect snow warning has also been issued for Mercer and Venango Counties in Pennsylvania.

West Virginia: Preston

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for the following counties:

Pennsylvania: Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Clarion, Greene, Indiana, Jefferson, Lawrence and Washington.

West Virginia: Brooke, Hancock, Marshall, Monongalia and Ohio.

    In the UK we’re expecting a similar situation the coming weekend, with a polar vortex fragment positioning itself directly over the Britain.

    It’s not out of normal probability that us Brits could be asking for help from our American friends.

  17. Corey says:

  18. Taylor Marisa says:

    does this include south fayette?

  19. Tired says:

    I should have been a weather man, that way I could be wrong all the time and still make a good living. 3-5 inches of what? it sure ain’t snow…..more like a pile of BS. I think the stations are owned by Giant Eagle, sales are slow, lets create a “snow storm”.
