Fast-Moving Storm System Brings Round Of Snow
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A fast-moving storm system dropped snow across the area Friday evening, creating some hazardous driving conditions on local roads.
The snow started wrapping up around midnight, and KDKA Chief Meteorologist Jeff Verszyla says things will go quiet overnight.
A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for Cambria and Somerset counties through 5 a.m. Allegheny County is under a Flood Advisory through Sunday evening.
“There’s not the areal coverage to the snow showers that we had just a few hours ago,” said Verszyla. “Things are beginning to scatter out and taper off and this will be the trend for the next two, three hours up through about two o’clock in the morning. We’ll see some light, scattered snow showers through the area, and then after two o’clock in the morning, things are going to be ending all together.
At wake up, Verszyla says there will be no precipitation but there will be lingering clouds. In the afternoon, it will be brisk and cold.
“As low pressure moves away, what moves in behind it? A cold air mass and high pressure, so we’ll see some sunshine [Saturday], but temperatures not much over 30 degrees,” he said.
KDKA’s John Shumway on road conditions:
As for Sunday, Verszyla says the wintry mix will return right around kickoff time for the Dolphins-Steelers game. He expects cloudy conditions in the morning and then a wintry mix developing in the afternoon. But by evening it will change over to rain.
“Some moisture will start seeping up from the south, generally light precipitation, but it’s going to be of the mixed variety in the afternoon,” Verszyla said.
However, the Monday morning commute should not be an issue.
