Winter Weather Advisory Remains In Effect For Parts Of Area
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for several counties across the area as more snow is possible throughout the day.
The advisory remains in effect for Armstrong, Butler, Cambria, Clarion, Indiana, Jefferson, Lawrence, Mercer, Somerset and Venango counties through Sunday morning.
KDKA’s Jon Burnett says to expect another possible inch or two with more in the higher elevations before the snow ends. Temperatures will stay frosty too with a high of 23.
“As we head into the overnight hours, things will quiet down all together,” said Burnett. “No snow [Sunday] or Monday; Tuesday – a chance for accumulating snowfall with a storm that’s developing now in the Gulf Coast – and then Wednesday it just looks like a few flurries.”
Drivers are being advised to use extra caution today due to snow-covered roads and limited visibilities.
Highs will stay in the upper 20s on both Sunday and Monday.
Then, on Tuesday, snow is expected to make its return with a possible two to four inches in the preliminary forecast.
Burnett says a developing storm in the Gulf Coast could bring more snow next week.
“It’s still way back to the west in the Gulf, almost to the Houston area as the center of circulation; but as that storm continues pushing through the deep south over the weekend, it will provide a mix of freezing rain and sleet to the deep south,” said Burnett.
“As it moves on up the eastern seaboard over the weekend, this system will provide snow for us here in western Pennsylvania. Fortunately, at this point, computer models are putting the track of this storm far enough to the east so that the bulk of the precipitation – the heaviest snowfall – will remain to our east,” he added. “I do think we’ll still see something on the order of possibly two to four inches on Tuesday into early Wednesday before things quiet down Wednesday night and Thursday.”
