PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Tonight, first, some rain and sleet will combine with little or no snow accumulation.
Temperatures will stay near normal on Friday with most of the day dry.
Then we get a blast of cold air over the weekend starting Saturday morning, with teen lows and possibly single digits. It should feel like it’s in the single digits and the afternoon highs only get it closer to 20 degrees.
Sunday will start to dry out, but conditions will start to change around dinner time. That’s when we’ll start to see flakes.
What we do know for sure is that there will be snow, said Mary Ours, meteorologist for KDKA. However, it is still too early to say that we will see much of this accumulation.
The track has shifted further east in some models, which means less snow for us. However, if it were further inland, we could get a larger amount of snow. Some models have good blizzards in the south and east, but the run can and will change as the system approaches.
This mid-level low takes moisture from the Gulf, so it’s a large system. It looks like the eastern areas, regardless of the track, will be impacted by the high total snowfall.
The system looks set to come out early Monday and temperatures back to normal by early next week. Chances for sleet could linger for the first part of the week.
