Winter Storm Warning In Effect For W. Pa.
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The storm headed for the Pittsburgh area will be a mixed bag of precipitation.
KDKA Chief Meteorologist Jeff Verszyla says what you see in your neighborhood will depend on where you live.
“As the precipitation starts to move in, initially it’s going to start off with a period of some light snow showers which will probably last up through midnight – maybe beyond into a portion of the overnight period,” Jeff said.
The light snow showers will arrive before midnight. After midnight, Jeff predicts the snow will change to a sleet and freezing rain mix.
He expects ice accumulation during the Tuesday morning commute.
“Now as we head through out the afternoon, the precipitation will lighten up – it may end all together in some locations and by that point I think temperatures across most of the area should be above freezing,” Jeff said. “So we’ll go with some plain drizzle in the area [Tuesday] afternoon.”
Tuesday night should bring rain to the area. On Wednesday the rain could turn to snow showers in the afternoon.
