Winter Weather Advisories Issued For Parts Of Area

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The calendar may indicate that it's the middle of March, but winter doesn't seem to be done with us just yet.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Cambria and Somerset counties in Pennsylvania from 1 a.m. until 6 p.m. Friday.

According to the National Weather Service, a total of 3-6 inches could fall in those areas.

The heaviest period of snow will fall from the early morning into the afternoon.

"It's going to take several hours for the air to moisten up and get damp enough to sustain the precipitation all the way and get it all the way down to the ground, that'll happen shortly after midnight and it'll begin as a little wet snow locally with no accumulation, some rain mixing in, too," said KDKA's Jon Burnett.

"But when you get out east of the Laurel Highlands, in the Highlands themselves and east over to Johnstown and up to State College, there, the air is going to remain cold enough so that that rain will actually occur in the form of snow and it will be all snow for our neighbors to the east," Burnett added.

A Winter Weather Advisory is also in effect for Garrett County, Maryland, from 1 a.m. until 2 p.m. Friday.

A total of 2-4 inches of snow is expected to fall.

"That snow will extend all the way up to the state line and out east. This storm will progress through Saturday morning before finally ending up off the eastern seaboard," said Burnett.

The period of the heaviest snow and ice will be from 4 a.m. to 10 a.m.
