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.

Stores in and around the South Hills can't keep up with the demand for sleds. Dick's Sporting Goods at South Hills Village has no sleds left in stock. The same story over at Toys R Us.
