PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Snow showers continue to be possible into the afternoon.

Pittsburgh didn’t see much snow through the morning commute, but snow Squalls are now making their way across the region.

The National Weather Service has issued a Snow Squall Warning until 11:30 a.m. for Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler and Westmoreland counties, including I-279, I-376, I-579, I-76 near Pittsburgh. Drivers are being urged to use extreme caution on the roads and watch for rapidly changing conditions.

A Snow Squall Warning was issued just before 9 a.m. for some areas along I-80.

Snow totals nearer to the city won’t amount to much of anything, but there are concerns due to temperatures hovering on both sides of the freezing mark in some places.

Expect a windy afternoon, with cold air rushing in. There are wind advisories posted for places to the southeast, just outside our coverage area, and we will likely see sustained wind speeds topping 20 mph along with gusts above 30 mph.
