Where's the Snow?

National Weather Service drops winter storm warning.

Despite dire reports of a snowstorm heading this way, Cranberry-area residents are looking at rain this afternoon.

The National Weather Service even dropped its winter storm warning for snow that originally was in effect from 5 a.m. Monday until 2 a.m. Tuesday.

Counties east and south of Pittsburgh did not fare as well—the snowstorm knocked out power to thousands of customers and Pennsylvania Turnpike officials declared a weather emergency, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Over the weekend, the weather service issued a winter storm watch, then upgraded it to a warning Sunday afternoon, warning of a heavy, wet snowfall.

Sunday evening's rain was supposed to turn into snow overnight. Forecasters warned that the snow combined with strong winds could bring down tree limbs, which would in turn cause power outages.
