Snow Heading In This Weekend, Could Drop 2-5 Inches

Don’t expect a warm-up anytime soon, and snow could be headed in this weekend.

Friday: Dry. High temperatures near 31 degrees.

Saturday to Sunday: Highs in the mid-30s with accumulating snow expected. Model data has this system falling apart before it is set to arrive, but Smiley thinks that data is wrong this time. He says almost everyone along and south of I-80 sees 2 inches of snow falling. Locally, higher amounts will be possible. At this time, the map is fairly big when it comes to the spread of two to five inches, but that is partially due to uncertainty.

Pittsburgh police seeking graffiti vandal leaving chicken tags

By Megan Guza

The man struck Rugger’s Pub just after midnight Dec. 1 when he walked in, ordered a drink, then disappeared to the bathroom, according to police. He allegedly left the bathroom and then left the bar.

The strong odor coming from the bathroom tipped off patrols and staff to the freshly painted chickens on the bathroom wall and mirror, police said.

Investigators said similar graffiti tags have been found throughout the neighborhood.

The suspect is described as a 21-year-old man with long brown hair. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Alphonso Sloan at 412-495-6052.

City officials don’t expect gun rally to cause major disruptions | Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Police are ready to close down Grant Street in front of the City-County Building but are not planning to do so from the start.

Ahead of Monday’s open carry protest outside the City-County Building, public officials say they are ready for anything, but do not currently expect major disruptions in Downtown Pittsburgh.

Justin Dillon, 31, of Erie, Pa.,organized the protest in response to Pittsburgh City Council legislation introduced last month to ban assault-style weapons and types of ammunition, following the Oct. 27 mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Squirrel Hill.

Mr. Dillon, who in 2014 won a court battle against the City of Erie over an ordinance banning guns in city parks, said the proposed legislation violates state law, which bans counties and municipalities from enacting gun regulations beyond those the state enacts.

Mr. Dillon initially applied for a permit for “fewer than 200” to protest but said he now expects many more — possibly in excess of 600 people — to attend the demonstration.
