Snow moving out, making way for warmer temperatures



PITTSBURGH - A winter storm warning will remain in effect in the mountains until 7 p.m. Saturday.

Snow fell at varying rates across the Channel 11 viewing area throughout the day Friday, said Severe Weather Team meteorologist Scott Harbaugh.

Snow showers remained in the region overnight into Saturday morning causing some slick roadways.

In Penn Hills, a salt truck driver lost control of his truck Friday night and slid backwards into a parked car on Pershing Street.

Although most main roads have been cleared, Public Works officials ask for the public’s patience as they work to clear all streets.

Some areas could still see snow flurries into Saturday afternoon, but skies should clear out by night, Harbaugh said.

Saturday snow totals could reach up to 3 inches in the mountains, while most areas north of Pittsburgh will see an inch or less. Areas south of Pittsburgh could see a little more than an inch of accumulation.

Another system will make its way into the viewing area Sunday night into Monday morning. The system will bring a wintry-mix to some areas, mostly north of Pittsburgh. Harbaugh is tracking the system and said Pittsburgh should see mostly rain.

Next week will bring warmer temperatures, with highs near 60 degrees by Wednesday.
