By: Dennis Bowman

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Another round of snow is heading towards the Pittsburgh area.

KDKA Meteorologist Dennis Bowman says we should be dry through early afternoon with snow beginning lightly around 2 p.m. or 3 p.m.

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Clarion, Cambria, Crawford, Greene, Indiana, Jefferson, Lawrence, Mercer, Somerset, Venango and Washington counties.

Bowman says we can expect about an inch on the ground by the evening rush hour, which would be enough to slicken things up for the evening commute.

The snow is expected to grow steadier and heavier during the evening hours with three inches on the ground by midnight.

Bowman says to expect the Pittsburgh area to be in the three to five inch grand total range by 6 a.m. on Friday.

The Laurel ridges will see four to six inches, and the I-80 corridor will see two to three inches with more coming there in lake effect snow on Friday.

Today’s high is expected to reach 27, and tonight’s low will be a frigid 16 degrees. On Friday, there will be some light snow as we go through the day with a high near 20.

Over the weekend, Bowman says highs will only reach into the teens with single-digit lows. As for the Steelers game over at Heinz Field Sunday evening, it looks like a game-time temperature of about 16 degrees.

    Ha ha noticed the last time, Westmoreland county was not included in the advisory. What is up with that? massive blob heading our way covering practically the whole state HOWEVER we here in Westmoreland county are to be spared-maybe sunny and 80 degrees?

    Does anyone know where I can find a goat or two? I hear they will eat anything, including the snow that I’m sick of shoveling off the sidewalk. I’d also like to train it to drop deuce in my neighbor Ralph’s yard!
