Mixture of Snow and Freezing Rain Expected During Monday Morning Commute in Pittsburgh
A storm that could bring snow and freezing rain is expected to hit the area shortly after midnight Monday.
The Monday morning rush hour is shaping up to be troublesome with a storm that could bring snow and freezing rain to the South Hills of Pittsburgh.
The National Weather service in Pittsburgh has issued a winter weather advisory from 1 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday for most of western Pennsylvania.
A mixture of snow, sleet, and freezing rain is expected overnight into Monday morning. Because very cold ground and snow pack, roads and sidewalks are expected to be icy.
This storm comes just a few days after the South Hills were hit with about 5 inches of snow Friday and Saturday. The storm caused numerous traffic accidents and delays around the area.
