Reported by: Meteorologist Steve Newton

Freezing rain is falling to our east, and we could see some freezing rain this evening ahead of a cold front. A freezing rain advisory is in effect until midnight for the valley counties. Rain will move over the valleys later this evening and we could see a coating of ice on surfaces before a cold front moves in from the west early Monday morning.
The cold front will start with us getting rain showers, and turn to snow around the Monday morning commute. From the snow we’ll only see a trace to 2” across the region. Temperatures will fall throughout Monday as the next round of arctic air moves into the region. A wind chill watch is in effect for Monday night through Wednesday morning for the valleys; with wind chill values as low as -25°F. A wind chill warning is in effect for Somerset, Cambria, Indiana, Clearfield, Jefferson, Elk, and Cameron Counties from 3 p.m. Monday until noon Wednesday; with wind chill values as low as -35° to -40°F.
Record low temperatures could be seen in many places Monday night into Tuesday, and some communities will not get above zero Tuesday afternoon. The arctic air won’t stick around all week as some warmer air starts moving in for Thursday and Friday. Temperatures will be in the upper teens and low 20s Wednesday, and getting above freezing Thursday and Friday. We could see some snow showers or flurries Thursday and into Friday. Heading into the weekend we could see some rain showers as temperatures get close to 40° in a few spots.
