PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Low temperatures and bitter-cold wind chills have swept in across the region today.

Despite some sunshine, the high will reach just 14 degrees this afternoon with sub-zero wind chills all day.

It will be mostly cloudy tonight and frigid with a low of 5 above. Do be mindful of intense lake effect snow north of I-80 the next couple of days in Erie, Warren and Crawford counties.

Traveling north into the snowbelt will be difficult at times with heavy snow and reduced visibility.

The next two days will be fairly settled locally, but cold. It will be mostly cloudy with a few flurries on Wednesday, and still cold with a high of only 17 and falling back to about 11 by Thursday morning.

Thursday looks like the best day of the week with some sunshine and a “not so harsh” high of 23.

Thursday night into Friday morning will feature the arrival of our next snowmaker.

Two low pressure systems will merge to form a snowstorm over western Pennsylvania.

While it is too early to forecast snow amounts, the potential is there for several inches of snow on Friday in the Pittsburgh area with the heaviest time period being 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

This is a situation that forecasters will be watching closely.
