The National Weather Service is urging Western Pennsylvania motorists and pedestrians to be on the lookout for icy conditions through this afternoon.

“There is a lingering drizzle in many areas and (temperatures in) many locations are still below freezing. That could result in a light coating of ice that makes untreated surfaces slick,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Charlie Woodrum, who is based in Moon.

Woodrum said that could cause slippery conditions on sidewalks and elevated roadways or bridges. A winter weather advisory remains in effect for most of Western Pennsylvania through 6 p.m.

An Allegheny County emergency dispatcher reported no major problems on area roadways shortly before noon.
