Storm System To Bring Rain-Snow Mix Over Weekend
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Changeable weather will impact the area over the next few days.
KDKA meteorologist Dennis Bowman says a fast-moving system coated the area with a half-inch of accumulation today.
The high will get up to 37, which will be the first time we’ve been above freezing since the early hours of Dec. 1.
Tonight, skies will be partly cloudy with a low of 26.
Bowman say Saturday will begin with sunshine, but clouds will increase during the afternoon. The high will be milder at 42 degrees on Saturday afternoon.
Our next storm system will bring a rain-snow mix to the area late Saturday night and into Sunday morning.
The National Weather Service has now issued a Winter Storm Watch for parts of our area.
Then, the precipitation changes over to all snow during the afternoon, accumulating to about one to two inches by evening.
On Sunday, the high should hit around 36 degrees early on, but temperatures will fall through the second half of the day to a low on Sunday night of about 18.
Bowman say very cold air will then take hold for the start of the work week with lake effect snow returning to the area.
