PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Colder temperatures and some snow are on the way, which has prompted a Winter Weather Advisory to be issued for much of the viewing area.

The advisory will be in effect from 4 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday.

“Late tonight, things will get rolling,” said KDKA-TV Meteorologist Jeff Verszyla.

Verszyla says to expect about 2-3 inches of snow locally Tuesday. With more like 3-5 inches of snow falling in the Laurel Highlands, southern regions and northern parts of West Virginia.

The heaviest snowfall will happen in the morning and afternoon hours. The snow will wrap up in the evening. The high temperature for the day will be around 14 degrees.

Motorists are being advised to take it slow while out on the roads during these conditions.

However, the cold air is expected to remain for much of the week.

On Wednesday, the high temperature will be around 12 degrees, before warming up to 18 degrees on Thursday.
