Lingering Snow Shower Still Possible, But Clouds To Break In Late Afternoon
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The snow moved out a few hours ago, and we aren’t expecting much more Saturday.
However, the cold temperatures overnight could continue to cause some icy conditions on the roads.
KDKA Chief Meteorologist Jeff Verszyla says he expects cloudy skies overnight with a lingering snow shower and temperatures in the teens. He says we’ll see less than one inch of snow.
“Vipir Radar [is] filling in with some flurry activity. Most of this is on the light side, but the persistence of the flurries may lead to an additional coating of snow in some spots to as much as maybe a half an inch to an inch,” said Verszyla. “I think the best chance to get that half inch to an inch is going to be as you get farther north where I think the flurry activity will be more persistent overnight tonight and into tomorrow morning.”
On Saturday, brisk and cold conditions are in the forecast with morning flurries and mostly cloudy skies.
“We’re going to get some flurries [Saturday]; they’re likely going to be during the morning timeframe,” Verszyla said. “By the time we hit lunch, 20 degrees, mostly cloudy skies through the afternoon, 25 the high temperature with a little bit of hope that the clouds may break for some sunshine by late tomorrow afternoon.
“Maybe around four o’clock some rays of sunshine may peek through for about an hour and a half before the sun goes down and that should set us up for clearing skies tomorrow night and better weather, a least brighter skies, on Sunday,” he added.
