Western Pennsylvania wakes to snow, little more expected
More than an inch of snow fell in Western Pennsylvania overnight, but forecasters expect only a little more precipitation Thursday.
By 7:30 a.m., 1.4 inches of snow was on the ground in Moon, according to a National Weather Service snowfall report.
Meteorologist Tom Green said he expected another half inch to fall in the morning, with more snow farther north of Pittsburgh. It will taper off in the afternoon, and no more snow is expected until Sunday, Green said.
The high will be around freezing today and in the upper 30s on Friday, he said.
Trib news partner WPXI-TV is calling for the mercury to reach into the low 40s on Saturday and Sunday.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
