Pittsburgh Weather: Slow-Moving Storm Bringing Snow, Sleet, Freezing Rain And Ice

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - We're staying in our First Alert coverage Friday morning, as precipitation has changed and everyone is being impacted by some sort of hazardous weather, whether that be power outages, flooding, ice, and heavy snow, and we are going to walk you through it all as it happens.

This front is still very slow-moving, and Thursday a lot of areas were waiting for ice and it's here. We are seeing a mixed bag of precipitation and some areas like Pittsburgh Int'l saw .34" of ice and .25" in Beaver Falls.
