A storm that could bring snow and freezing rain is expected to hit the area shortly after midnight Monday.
The Monday morning rush hour is shaping up to be troublesome with a storm that could bring snow and freezing rain to Peters.
The National Weather service in Pittsburgh has issued a winter weather advisory from 1 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday for most of western Pennsylvania.
A mixture of snow, sleet, and freezing rain is expected overnight into Monday morning. Because very cold ground and snow pack, roads and sidewalks are expected to be icy.
This storm comes just a few days after Peters was hit with about 5 inches of snow Friday and Saturday. The storm caused numerous traffic accidents and delays around the Pittsburgh area.
