The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas.

Snow accumulation is projected be be at least 2 inches accumulating all through today. The most intense snowfall is expected mid afternoon today.

Temperatures will continue to drop through the 20s all through the day, with 5-10 degree temperatures tonight. Wind chill temperature is expected to drop between 0 and -5 tonight and tomorrow morning.

This afternoon into late morning tomorrow, hazardous driving conditions can be expected with 30-40 MPH wind gusts blowing snow.

Local weather projections show snow likely until 6 AM tomorrow. Lowest projected temperature is -6 from 4-6 AM tomorrow.

Under “Winter Weather Information,” of the National Weather Service, we are told to remember several things.

First, do not focus on exact numbers in the weather report, especially days in advance. These numbers are a general estimate and will change depending on location. The same goes for the future view radar, which is a computer generated simulation, not a crystal ball. There is no way to predict with 100% accuracy the future weather conditions.

Second, no matter how bad the weather gets, we’re still better off than St. Edward’s Island, Canada where they already have gotten 6 feet of snow.
