Weather Advisories Posted as Storm Rolls Into PA

Winter weather advisories and storm warnings have been posted for much of Pennsylvania as a storm bearing a wintry mix of precipitation rolls into the commonwealth.

The National Weather Service says snow, sleet and areas of freezing rain and ice are expected later Tuesday in areas from western to northeastern Pennsylvania.

According to the National Weather Service, the forecast for Pittsburgh calls for snow, possibly mixed with sleet, before 1 p.m. Rain and snow can be expected between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., with rain continuing after 4 p.m. A total daytime snow and sleet accumulation of 1 to 2 inches is expected.

More snow and sleet are forecast for Tuesday night, with 2 to 4 inches possible overnight.

Hazardous travel conditions are expected along with possible power outages with conditions improving later in the day Wednesday, which as the day before Thanksgiving is traditionally one of the busiest travel days of the year.
