Western Pennsylvania’s commuters could be confronted with slippery, icy roads Monday amid a spate of snow flurries expected to continue through Tuesday morning, meteorologists said.
Sunday night’s severe thunderstorms that brought rain and hail to parts of Allegheny, Butler and Beaver counties will transition into snow showers after 3 a.m. Monday, the National Weather Service in Moon Township said.
A winter weather advisory is in effect for Western Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio and northern West Virginia from 7 a.m. Monday through 7 a.m. Tuesday.
In Westmoreland County, as much as 3 to 6 inches is expected to fall just south and east of Latrobe.
Less than an inch of snow is predicted in Pittsburgh and most of its surrounding suburbs, including the Alle-Kiski Valley.
Butler County could get up to an inch, and Indiana County could get up to 2 inches, the weather service said.
