PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — With a line of snow showers moving across the region, a Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for much of the area through Sunday morning.
According to KDKA’s Jon Burnett the snow will accumulate on the order of one to three inches for most of the viewing area.
The counties under the advisory include: Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Cambria, Indiana, Lawrence, Somerset and Washington. It’ll be in effect until 10 a.m.
Brooke, Hancock and Preston counties in West Virginia, as well as Garrett County in Maryland, also fall under the advisory.
“We’ve got snow moving in from the west,” Burnett said. “This is an upper level low that’s working its way through a trough that will be coming through overnight and then we’ll see a lake effect action set up off of Lake Erie that will provide us with another round of snow showers during the day [Sunday].”
Burnett says we’ll see cold, blustery and snowy conditions with a high of 25 degrees Sunday.
“I think tonight we’re looking at something on the order, in most locations, of one to two, maybe three inches at most. And then tomorrow we could see an additional coating to an inch of snowfall before it all wraps up and things quiet down and warm up nicely as we head into the first part of the week,” Burnett added.
As we head into the week, conditions are expected to take a turn for the better; however, it is not expected to last long.
“Then, as we head into Monday, things will really start to get mild in a hurry,” said Burnett. “As warm air comes rushing in, temperatures will go from mid-20s, low- to mid-20s for highs [Sunday], all the way into the low- to mid-40s for highs on Monday and Tuesday before this cold front hits town and changes us back over to winter weather. We’ll be right back into the deep freeze as we hit the middle part of the week.”
