PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A winter weather advisory will be in effect until 6 p.m. Friday as snow moves into the Pittsburgh area overnight.

“We will see two-to-four inches of snow – not quite enough to qualify as a blizzard – and we will have wind gusts pushing up as close to 40-45 mph as we’ve seen since last season,” KDKA’s Jon Burnett said.

The advisory affects all counties in the Pittsburgh viewing area, including Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Fayette, Greene, Indiana, Lawrence, Washington and Westmoreland counties.

“By 1 a.m., I think we’ll see the freeze line move across the western Pennsylvania-Ohio line and migrate further into the middle part of the state by three, four, five in the morning,” he continued.

“We’ll see icy roads, strong winds, low visibility and by the time it’s all said and done late [Friday] afternoon, two to four inches locally, three to five [ inches] north and east and then just flurries [Friday] night and onto the weekend,” Burnett said.
