PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Overnight rain turned to snow into Tuesday morning but conditions worked against any accumulation.

AccuWeather’s Isaac Longley tells Larry and John on KDKA Radio warm temperatures stuck around a little longer than expected.

“That’s’ really why we didn’t see too much in the way of snow fall, especially last night is because those temperatures were on the warm side and again we saw the sunshine yesterday so that really gave a chance for the roadways to warm up,” said Longley.

Ryan Automotive in Kennedy Township tells KDKA Radio with the news of snow Monday, people were lined up to get their snow tires for the season.

Luckily they didn’t need them, yet.

Tuesday’s high won’t get above freezing and temps will dip close to a record low of 13 in the evening.

Real feel temps will be in the single digits.

But there is relief coming. Temperatures head back up into the 40s by Thursday.
