Snow, Cold Temperatures Expected To Persist

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Winter weather alerts remain in effect all across the area today as snow continues to fall and frigid temperatures persist.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for several local counties.

KDKA’s Jon Burnett says he expects additional accumulation through Tuesday.

“The lake effect snow machine continues to crank,” said Burnett. “I don’t think it’s going away, not any time soon. In fact, I expect another one to three inches of accumulation today and tonight, and maybe an additional inch possible [Tuesday] before it all wraps up; and the cold [is] not even going away before this weekend. We don’t get back above freezing till Friday, if then.”

Burnett says he expects today’s high to reach 21 degrees. He says temperatures will remain in the 20s all week, possible reaching above that Friday with a high of 32.

“The biting winds will continue – that will keep wind chills in single digits for most of the upcoming week,” he said. “The good news is that by the time we get on toward Friday, we’ll start to see things calm down and warm up slightly.”

By Wednesday, Burnett says we’ll see the snow showers just tapering to flurries.

“No additional accumulation… after midnight [Tuesday],” he added. “But we will see another inch to three between now and then, maybe more than that north of I-80 and over in the Laurel Highlands.”

    Why is Westmoreland County not under any watches or warnings when all the counties around it are?

  2. Sharon says:

    I keep wondering the same thing, Keefe. Same with Fayette County.

  3. amb says:

    Westmoreland is also left out on channel 4. They have a strange county named “wetzel” listed. They have been called twice and it’s still there. Makes one wonder doesn’t it?

  4. Karma says:

    @ Keefa,Sharon and amb. We in Westmoreland County are under a winter storm warning/Winter Weather Advisory depending on where you are located in the county.

  5. Annie says:

    Amb- Wetzel county is in West Virginia.

  6. MLC says: is a better sitie for Westmoreland and Fayette

  7. Erik says:

    On the news around 5:20 this morning he said those 2 counties weren’t showing up because of some glitch, but that they were also under the warning.

  8. Amanda says:

    I live is Westmoreland County and we’re getting pounded with snow. It’s been snowing here since 3am this morning. We must’ve gotten a few inches already. I don’t understand why we’re not on the advisory list either..
