PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — While the Pittsburgh area has dealt with one round of snow, more of the white stuff is on the way, according to forecasters.

The Winter Weather Advisory for parts of western Pennsylvania will remain in effect until 7 p.m. Wednesday.

“We do have to deal with lake effect snow showers that will start kicking in late tonight and will continue off and on throughout the day tomorrow as the storm that has moved by tonight passes over to the east coast and sets up shop there and really starts to turn into a monster storm,” KDKA Weatherman Jon Burnett said.

Burnett said that the area has already seen the majority of the expected snowfall and only expects about an inch more in the immediate Pittsburgh area Wednesday.

By Thursday, he expects snow totals to reach three-to-five inches for most of the area; six-to-eight inches in the Laurel Highlands, possibly a foot in Garrett County, MD, and as much as eight-to-ten inches in isolated areas near Lake Erie.

Flurries are in the forecast Thursday and Friday. On Saturday, an Alberta Clipper could bring an inch or two.
