PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A wave of warm weather near the 50s this weekend will soon come to an end once Monday rolls around.

The record low for Jan. 19 was -22 degrees in 1994, a far cry from the warm weather Pittsburghers have experienced today.

Temperatures are expected to drop down into the twenties with highs Tuesday and Wednesday in the teens.

“Enjoy today … and then Monday, the bottom drops out,” Meteorologist Kristin Emery said.

Some of the coldest air of the season could start coming down from the north Sunday and Monday.

There is a chance of flurries late Sunday night and early Monday morning and a chance of about another inch of snow Monday.

Northern areas near Erie might get about 2 to 3 inches of snow Monday.
