Residents across most of southwestern Pennsylvania awoke this morning to snow, freezing rain, sleet and ice on roads, bridges and sidewalks. But the good news is that the winter weather advisory has been canceled for the city and much of the suburban area.
The winter weather advisory had been in effect until 10 a.m., but the bulk the precipitation, though, had moved to the northeast after 6 a.m. The advisory remains in effect until 10 a.m. for the ridges of Westmoreland and Fayette counties, and for Somerset, Blair and Clearfield counties and locations east.
Some school districts were operating on a 2-hour delay. Visit the our news partners at KDKA-TV for updates on delays or closings.
Overnight, locations to the north of Pittsburgh where temperatures were colder had experienced mostly snow, and warmer temperatures to the south allowed rain.
In the city and suburban areas, major roadways had been treated and were clear and passable for the most part.
As the day progresses, temperatures are forecast to rise into the mid 30s with southwest winds increasing to 10 to 15 mph with gusts to 25 mph by this afternoon.
