PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Snow covered roads in the Pittsburgh area Wednesday morning, with more expected to fall later in the day.
KDKA-TV Meteorologist Ron Smiley says scattered snow showers will pose a risk to drivers with road conditions potentially changing quickly in a short amount of time.
“Expect snow showers to stick around through the late afternoon hours as we continue to have lake effect snow along with a broad upper low pushing by,” Smiley said.
He added that this may be the coldest morning we see for some time.
