PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Tuesday’s morning commute was a bit tricky as snow, rain and freezing rain moved through the area.
On Wednesday, temperatures were well above the freezing mark for much of the area. However, the temperature will be falling into the teens starting this afternoon.
A wind advisory is in effect until 6 p.m. in the Pittsburgh area and until midnight in the Laurel Highlands.
Winds will be ranging from 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 50 mph.
KDKA-TV Meteorologist Dennis Bowman said we can expect strong cross winds with possible debris on the roads.
The high winds mean there is chance for some power outages.
The precipitation in the area will transition to snow and could leave some slick spots for the afternoon commute.
Bowman said the snow may only accumulate to a dusting.
