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 Ross Township and West View.
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:
- Sunday Night: Snow and freezing rain before 5am, then snow, freezing rain, and sleet. Low around 29. Southeast wind 5 to 7 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80 percent. New snow and sleet accumulation of less than a half inch possible.
- Monday: Rain or freezing rain, becoming all rain after 11 a.m. High near 43. Southwest wind 10 to 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80 percent. New precipitation amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.
- Monday Night: A chance of showers. Cloudy, with a low around 43. Southwest wind 11 to 13 mph. Chance of precipitation is 40 percent. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch possible.
