PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The extreme cold weather will persist through Wednesday.
This week’s weather has included the coldest air of the last two years.
“This is just the coldest air folks,” KDKA’s Jon Burnett said.
The core of the coldest air will hit Wednesday morning and will warm up later in the day, but only very minimally.
“There’ll be a slight warm-up, but you’re hardly going to notice to be honest,” Burnett said.
The National Weather Service’s wind chill advisory will stay in effect through Wednesday.
Winter weather advisories are in effect over most of Pennsylvania with lake effect snow warnings.
Areas north of Pittsburgh, near Erie could get snow and up to a foot of snow in some areas.
Temperatures will continue to stay very low in the single digits and will feel like sub-zero with wind chill factor.
Accumulating snow is expected for Friday and into Saturday. It’s still too early to tell how much, but it could be around 4 to 6 inches.
