PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Western Pennsylvania will see snow before the week is out.

That’s on top of the expected flood waters.

The flood warning for counties in the area will expire at 11 p.m. Some basement and street flooding is likely. Areas along the Monongahela and Ohio rivers will probably see some minor flooding.

The rivers are expected to crest Friday afternoon. The 10th Street Bypass is expected to flood again and there’s a chance the Parkway Central/Bathtub area will see water as well.

Meantime, temperatures will fall and change the rain to snow overnight Thursday.

“It probably won’t be until after midnight tonight for things to be cool enough to make the change over to wet snow,” KDKA Chief Meteorologist Jeff Verszyla said.

The area will see periods of wet snow Friday afternoon. About three to six inches of “heavy, wet, sticky” snow are expected to accumulate.
