PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Good morning. i expect to see a couple of snow showers popping up at times on radar through the day today with highs slightly warmer than yesterday’s 27 degrees we hit for a high. Morning lows will be near 20 degrees.
The next chance for impactful weather comes in on Saturday night.
In some Pittsburgh neighborhoods, snow doesn’t create a winter wonderland. It creates treacherous road conditions that too often go unplowed and untreated.
Following Wednesday night’s snowfall, City Councilman Anthony Coghill received five or six calls from residents who were concerned about snow-covered roads.
“That’s a walk in the park,” Coghill said, explaining that he received closer to 200 calls complaining about road conditions following a snowstorm last Christmas.
“I get phone calls every time it snows,” he said.
Coghill represents the 4th District, which encompasses Beechview, Bon Air, Brookline, Carrick, Mt. Washington and Overbrook — all hilly neighborhoods. Snow removal, he said, is a major concern for his constituents.
“I know it’s a problem,” he said. “We just need more resources.”

A 21-year-old Shaler man who admitted to damaging a Pittsburgh police car during the Downtown riots over the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis was sentenced Wednesday to one day in U.S. custody and six months in a halfway house.
U.S. District Judge Arthur Schwab imposed that term on Brian Bartels and also ordered him to pay $1,000 in restitution. The six-month sentence will be served as part of a three-year term of probation.
Bartels had previously pleaded guilty in September to obstruction of law enforcement during civil disorder.
U.S. prosecutors wanted jail time for Bartels but his lawyer asked for probation.
Law enforcement said Bartels kicked in the windshield of a cruiser and then spray-painted a letter A on it during the May 30 protests. His actions spurred on a crowd to further violence that led to the car being burned and other damage.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Shaun Sweeney said in sentencing papers that Bartels spray-painted the car “in the presence of an agitated crowd” and then smashed parts of the vehicle “in order to make it unusable by the officers who were trying to prevent civil disorder.”
He said Bartels did not directly assault any officers but obstructed them by damaging their car.
Joseph Otte, Bartels’ lawyer, said his client had accepted responsibility for his actions, meeting less than two days later with investigators to explain what he did.
