The Penn Hills Department of Public Works is requesting residents to avoid on-street parking ahead of expected snowfall on Saturday and Sunday.

The municipality’s Twitter account tweeted this Thursday morning: “Penn Hills Dept of Public Works is preparing for severe weather this weekend. Penn Hills is requesting that you utilize off street parking if it is available. It makes it easier for road crews to access streets. Please use caution while traveling and limit travel if possible.”

Public works was not immediately available to comment.

The National Weather Service in Moon Township forecasts snow showers Thursday evening through Friday morning and is calling for about 1 to 2 inches of snow accumulation.

Precipitation – including rain, snow and sleet – begins again Saturday morning and afternoon with a high around 34 and will last through late Sunday morning, NWS predicts.

The amount of snowfall expected is unclear, with predictions ranging from 5 inches and ice in the southern parts of Allegheny County and up to 14 inches in the north.

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.
