PITTSBURGH (KDKA/AP) – The Pittsburgh region will see snow Sunday and into Monday.
Allegheny County is expected to see 2 to 5 inches of snow Sunday. A Winter Weather Advisory took effect around 4 a.m.
Areas north of the city were expected to get several more inches of snow Saturday night and into Sunday.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for Butler, Clarion, Crawford, Jefferson, Lawrence, Mercer and Venango counties, expiring 7 a.m. Monday.
Many areas could get up to 6 inches – even 10 inches in Crawford County, Saturday night.
“You go north, just a little bit, and that total jumps from 3 to 6,” said KDKA’s Jon Burnett. “There are parts of the area that could see 8 to 10 inches.”
Sunday could also see some rain in the afternoon and another round of snow on top of that going into Monday, as temperatures fall.
Forecasters say the snow will change to sleet and freezing rain in some areas, leaving roads covered with a layer of ice that will make travel hazardous.
They say poor visibility will also be a problem at times before the storm moves out late Sunday or early Monday.
Monday morning could see a coating to an inch of snow.
