Update: Hazardous Travel Conditions Predicted as Snow Moves across the Region
National Weather Service warns of blowing snow, limited visibility and snow-covered roads.
Hazardous travel conditions are expected Monday night through Tuesday afternoon as snow covers local roads and blowing snow limits visibility, according to a winter weather advisory issued by the National Weather Service in Moon Township.
Blowing snow, an accumulation of 2 to 4 inches, wind gusts and temperatures in the 20-degree range are expected, the weather service stated.
"Wind gusts up to 30 mph will cause some blowing and drifting of snow, which will add to travel difficulties," the weather service's website stated. "The wind direction overnight will become more optimal for heavier snow bands to develop and in turn push these bands further south."
The advisory is in effect until 4 p.m. Tuesday and covers Allegheny, Beaver, Westmoreland and Fayette counties in Pennsylvania, Hancock County in West Virginia, and Columbiana County in Ohio.
There are no school closings or delays to report.
