PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – We’re almost 10″ below average in snowfall this season but more is on the way!
There will be some flakes today but overall the next two days will be mostly dry.
Cold air sweeps across the area tonight with low temperatures again in the teens and severe wind chills number one.
Saturday’s high will be around 20 degrees.
Don’t forget to bring your pet inside – that’s the law!
Now, if you plan ahead, Sunday morning it will be cold in the teens again but it will be dry. This colder air also makes it possible for our area to see all of the snow from Sunday night through Monday.
We’ll start to see flakes as the winter storm approaches from the south around 3pm
More and more models are agreeing that yes, we are getting snow and it will be thick at a rate of about 1 inch/hour.
Now, as we know, things can change and change.
The key thing we’re watching right now is that the low will be more south and east, which will shift 3-5 inches closer to the Pittsburgh region.
Right now, 5″+ is looking to be our spot. Keep in mind that this is an estimate only right now and it is subject to change and adjustment.
It’s not too common for us to see this much snow during a storm as it only happens once every two years.
Snow covered early Monday afternoon but no schools due to MLK Day so it could be some great snow as temperatures on Monday will be close to 30 so there won’t be a meltdown until possibly Wednesday when we see the next chance of rain and snow .
