Behind this front it will be windy and it will turn colder tonight with snow showers that still may be mixed with rain early in the evening. The snow showers will be more numerous near and just west of Route 219 where the snow will accumulate a couple of inches on some favored ridges. Be careful as there will be some slick spots on the road, and any wet spots may freeze as temperatures will drop into the 20s tonight. Remember a wet spot and an icy spot look the same so always assume it’s icy when it is this cold.
Tuesday and Wednesday will be quite windy and cold with variable cloudiness, flurries and snow showers. The snow showers will accumulate a few more inches on some of the ridges between Routes 119 and 219. Keep this in mind as travel will be tricky heading into western Pennsylvania. Highs each day will range from the 20s in the Laurel Highlands and north of I-80 to the lower to middle 30s in the valleys farther to the south and east. The wind will make it feel a good bit colder than that.
Thursday will still be a bit blustery with a cloudy to partly sunny sky. Highs will be in the 30s. The weather will become unsettled again as we head into the end of the week. The first of two disturbances will bring an increase in cloudiness on Friday with drizzle or a bit of rain developing later in the day. Highs will be in the 30s. Rain and drizzle Friday night will taper off for a while before another period of rain redevelops on Saturday. Temperatures will rise through the 30s to near 40 on Saturday and then may continue to rise despite rain Saturday night. Rain will taper to showers on Sunday but it will be cloudy to partly sunny, windy and relatively mild with highs well into the 40s. Some places may reach 50. We’ll have more clouds than sunshine on Monday with highs in the 40s before colder air makes a return later next week.
