PITTSBURGH - The work week began with frigid temperatures and the Monday evening commute was complicated by several inches of snow, particularly in areas south of Pittsburgh.

Severe Weather Team 11 chief meteorologist Stephen Cropper said steady snow is expected to last over the next several hours. The highest accumulations totals will be seen south of Pittsburgh in Washington and Fayette counties.

Cropper said that he anticipates the snow to affect area roads. Travelers should use caution as roadways might be snow-covered from time to time. In addition to snow-covered roads, limited visibility and moderate wind gusts could also complicate road travel.

Most spots have 1-3 inches of new snow accumulation on the ground by the time this weather event culminates Tuesday morning. There will be a bit more south of Interstate 70. Greater Pittsburgh should get approximately 2 inches.
