Winter weather advisory remains in effect as more snow moves through region


A winter weather advisory remains in effect until 9 a.m. Friday as a second band of snow moves through the Pittsburgh region.

The snowfall will add about another inch or two to the overnight snow accumulation of 1 to 4 inches, before tapering off in the late morning, according to the National Weather Service.

Some snow totals reported so far:

▪ Pittsburgh International Airport — 2.7 inches

▪ Cranberry — 2.5 inches

▪ Carnegie — 1 inch

▪ North Hills — 1.5 inches

▪ Seven Springs — 4 inches

Higher amounts of up to 6 inches were expected in Butler, Westmoreland and Armstrong counties and parties of Fayette County. School districts in those areas have announced two-hour delays.

Pittsburgh roadways and many suburban side roads have been clear of snow for the early morning commute.

“The ground temperatures have been warm lately and it’s not all accumulating,” said Bill Modzelewski, a meteorologist with the Weather Service in Pittsburgh.

Temperatures have dipped just under the freezing mark, to 31 degrees at the airport. The high will hover around 32 for much of the day. Winds are forecast to increase 13 to 18 mph in the afternoon, with gusts topping 28 mph.
