Winter Weather Advisory: Mixture of Snow, Sleet, and Freezing Rain Predicted for Morning Rush
The storm could affect morning rush hour traffic.
There could be very little rush to the Monday morning rush hour. The National Weather service in Pittsburgh has issued a winter weather advisory from 1 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday for most of Western Pennsylvania, including Dormont and Brookline.
A mixture of snow, sleet, and freezing rain is expected overnight into Monday morning. Because very cold ground and snow pack, roads and sidewalks are expected to be icy.
Here is a more detailed look at the forecast:
