Heavy Snow Blankets Pittsburgh Region As Winter Storm Makes Way Across Area

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- As snowfall continued to come down across Western Pennsylvania, KDKA had team coverage, checking on road conditions in different areas across the region.

Shortly after 4:00 a.m., PennDOT crews were in Downtown Pittsburgh clearing roadways.

Watch as KDKA's Chris Hoffman reports:


Amy Wadas reported live from Cranberry Township at the intersection of Route 19 and Route 228.

PennDOT said they are working in 12 hour shifts.

Chris Hoffman took to the roadways in the KDKA Mobile Weather Lab tracking conditions east of Pittsburgh in Westmoreland County.

The Mobile Weather Lab left the Downtown area and headed East, observing conditions along the way.

Conditions in Plum were a little bit better, but still less than ideal.

KDKA Photojournalist Brian Smithmyer observed a vehicle struggling in Pittsburgh's Elliott neighborhood.


Several other neighborhoods in the city of Pittsburgh were dealing with snow covered roads as well, like along McLain Street in Allentown.
