• Thin band of snow drops snow on some areas; Stretch of warm temps coming


    PITTSBURGH - A thin, narrow band of snow dropped snow in some parts of the Channel 11 viewing area, prompting school delays and causing slick roads for the morning commute.

    Severe Weather Team meteorologist Valerie Smock said the North Hills had a persistent band overnight.

    The National Weather Service reported that Pittsburgh only received two-tenths of an inch. But despite the low accumulation, the cold temperatures caused slick road conditions in many areas.

    “The temperatures will remain below freezing so wet roads can easily be slick,” Smock said.

    The high Wednesday will only reach 28 degrees.

    However, after today the forecast will improve greatly for the remainder of the week. Temperatures will get back into the 50s and 60s – something the WPXI-TV Pittsburgh viewing area hasn’t seen since Halloween.

    Rain showers will move in Thursday night and linger through Friday. Some showers are expected on Saturday as well.
