The Upper St. Clair Public Works Department is using time Thursday to prepare for the first significant snow of the season.
The weather report is calling for 2 to 4 inches of snow in a 36-hour period, starting Thursday night into Friday morning.
"At this time temperatures do not seem to be an issue as they will hold in the mid-to-upper 20s. As for the wind, the winds are always an issue for us in the elevated areas as they continuously re-cover the treated roadway, but we will deal with it as it comes," said George Kostelich, public works director.
All the equipment has been prepared.
Kostelich cautions holiday motorists traveling through the township to have patience and use caution because traffic levels are expected to be higher leading into a holiday weekend.
Meantime, hopes may be dashed for anyone dreaming of a white Christmas.

Meteorologist John Darnley, of the National Weather Service in Moon, said no Yuletide snow is on the way.
Christmas Eve is predicted to be mostly cloudy with a high near 35. There is a 30 percent chance of rain and snow showers on Christmas day with a high near 37.
