PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – While the snow has temporarily stopped falling, the same could not be said for the temperature.

In Pittsburgh, the temperature dropped to minus-6 with the wind chill around 6:30 a.m.

As a result of the bitter cold, the National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Advisory, which will remain in effect until 1 p.m.

Many schools around the area have either delayed or cancelled school today because of the cold.

The cold is also being blamed for two water main breaks Wednesday morning.

The first happened in the 1000-block of McLaughlin Run in Bridgeville around 4:30 a.m. That break has since been cleared.

The second break happened in Mount Lebanon on Couch Farm Road around 6:30 a.m. Crews were initially having trouble locating the source of the water and were still at the scene as of 7 a.m.

According to KDKA-TV Meteorologist Dennis Bowman, the temperature will warm up throughout the day, but only slightly.

Wednesday’s high will be around 11 degrees, with an overnight low of 8 degrees. Light snow will arrive this evening, which is only expected to leave a coating.

For Thursday, the high will be about 15 degrees with an overnight low of 3 degrees.
