Snow Causes School Delays

Snow Causes School Delays - Overnight snow with forecasts of more to come were slowing the morning commute Monday and causing school delays and closings across the region.

The Pittsburgh Public Schools were among the districts operating on a 2-hour delay. Others, such as Albert Gallatin and Laurel Highlands in Fayette County, are closed for the day. See information about school closings and delays on KDKA.com, the Post-Gazette's news partner.

A winter weather advisory is in effect for southwestern Pennsylvania until 7 a.m. Tuesday, but locations to the east and north will be hit harder.

In Pittsburgh and nearby suburban areas, lake effect snow, coupled with winds that could gust to 30 mph, will cause hazardous travel conditions. Two to 4 inches are forecast to fall during the day with another inch or two tonight.

A winter storm warning is in effect until 7 a.m. Tuesday for the ridges of Fayette and Westmoreland counties, and for all of Cambria and Somerset counties. As much as 10 inches could fall in lower elevations with as much as 15 inches on the ridgetops.

In the hours before dawn, suburban highways were mostly clear. Some side streets were snow covered and slippery. Just after 5 a.m., many Downtown streets had some snow on them.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
