Most Western Pennsylvania schools have canceled classes and activities Wednesday in anticipation of sub-zero temperatures.

The National Weather Service’s Pittsburgh branch has projected temperatures Wednesday could drop to -7 degrees around Pittsburgh, -9 in Washington County and -15 in Butler County. The temperature will feel like -19 to -24 degrees with wind chill.

The weather service issued wind chill warnings/advisories through Friday morning.

It also predicts bands of heavy snow could reduce visibility and drop a quick inch or two of snow into Wednesday morning.
