Locations north of I-80 are seeing snow showers and flurries this afternoon, and those will come to an end for part of the overnight hours. Temperatures will drop into the teens and low to mid 20s early Thursday, with snow showers arriving for the northern tier early Thursday and spreading to the southern portion of our viewing area by Thursday afternoon. A Winter Weather Advisory goes into effect for much of the region at 4 a.m. Thursday and lasts until 12 a.m. Friday. Many of the valley spots have the advisory lasting until 7 a.m. Friday. Locations in the Laurel Highlands and along the Northern Tier could see 3-5” of snow while valley spots may only get 1-3” of new snow. This is one of two events we’ll have going into the weekend, as high pressure moves in behind this system and drives arctic air into the region. A Wind Chill Advisory will go into effect at 7 p.m. for the Laurel Highlands and Northern Tier and lasting until noon Friday. Temperatures will drop into the low and mid single digits early Friday morning, with wind chills near -10° or -20°. While there will be some sunshine Friday, highs will only reach the upper single digits and low to mid teens. We will get some relief over the weekend before another round of rain or snow showers moves in for Sunday and Monday. Another blast of arctic air will arrive Monday, bringing the potential for sub-zero temperatures to the region.
