The Pittsburgh region could see snow showers Thursday, but nothing should accumulate for most of the area until late Thursday into Friday, the National Weather Service said.

The snow showers will be mainly in the evening and are only expected to leave 1 to 2 inches of accumulation for most of the area, said Lee Hendricks, a meteorologist at the Weather Service's office in Moon. Some areas to the north and east could see heavier accumulation, with an additional inch possible in Indiana County during the evening commute and 4 to 6 inches of snow in the mountains.

"It's also going to be breezy, so there may be a little bit of blowing snow around," Hendricks said. "There may be gusts of up to 25 mph."

The Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory for areas to the north, east and southeast of Pittsburgh for Thursday afternoon through Friday afternoon.

Temperatures will remain cold until the weekend, which also should be dry until the chance of more snow showers Monday, Hendricks said.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
