PITTSBURGH - As we near the start of March, a break from the constant pattern of frigid temperatures and snow is not anywhere in sight.
Meteorologist Valerie Smock says another round of snow coated most of the Channel 11 viewing area Wednesday morning.
Channel 11’s Brittny McGraw traveled the area’s roadways Wednesday morning, and reported that coated roadways were seen in both Allegheny and Westmoreland counties.
“The most intense snow should wrap up by 8 a.m., and then it will taper to flurries into the afternoon,” Smock said. “Expect 2 to 4 inches, with wind gusts up to 25 mph.”
In the Pittsburgh area, Smock said to expect a total of 1 to 2 inches.
More snow returns Thursday during the morning and afternoon hours. Smock said the snow showers should only leave a dusting.
A break from the snow comes Friday, but that’s only before another storm is predicted to hit the area Sunday/Monday.
That storm could potentially bring with it rain, mixing in with the snow… which, of course, could cause icy conditions.
The snow isn’t the only problem, however. Cold temperatures remain with highs struggling to get into the 20s.
Smock said a “warm up” into the 30s should arrive by the weekend, but over the next few days expect wind chills to drop below zero.
