Western Pa. Hit By Overnight Snow
PITTSBURGH (KDKA/AP) – Most of western Pennsylvania was under a thin blanket of snow that fell overnight, with more forecast through the day.
Areas north and east of Pittsburgh received as up to three inches of snow before dawn, and another inch was forecast to fall by late afternoon. Erie and other northwestern Pennsylvania areas received similar amounts, but were expected to get another three to five inches throughout the day.

Though some snow was forecast for the Poconos in eastern Pennsylvania, the forecast was hit-and-miss as to whether Philadelphia and other areas would receive much at all.
Higher elevations in the western and central parts of the state were also reporting overnight accumulations.
However, not much snow is expected through the end of the week.
A second storm could bring some snow to areas around Interstate 80 and near Clarion, but is not expected to bring snow closer to Pittsburgh — only some possible flurries.
Temperatures are expected to start to rise after Thursday, with precipitation decreasing as well.
