PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The first snow storm of the season began overnight and is expected to taper off late in the day on Saturday.

Our growing season ended Friday morning with a widespread killing freeze.

KDKA meteorologist Dennis Bowman said during the day on Saturday, rain and wet snow could create a slushy half-inch or so in the Pittsburgh area by early afternoon. However, heavy wet snow will accumulate to near six inches in the Laurel Highlands.

Very heavy snow will extend through the eastern part of the state with up to 10 inches in spots, so traveling east will be slow going.

On Saturday, Bowman said the high in Pittsburgh should reach 46 degrees.

The weather improves Saturday night and Sunday as skies begin to clear. Saturday night’s low will be 31.

With lots of sunshine on Sunday, the high will be near 50.
