PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The bitter cold temperatures have arrived and more snow will blanket the region overnight.
Meteorologist Kristin Emery says temperatures will stay steady tonight at around 19 degrees and we can expect an inch or two of snow by Sunday morning.
This is the second of two Alberta Clipper systems that’s moving through the area this weekend.
“There’s not a whole lot of moisture with this, so we’ll call it maybe an inch to, at the most, two inches of accumulation through the night tonight and ending about 9 a.m. [Sunday] morning with the last flurries,” said Emery.
After the system passes through, Emery says temperatures will swing up.
“Temperatures are actually going to stay fairly steady where we are right now – just in the upper-teens the rest of night – and then climb to near 30 degrees for [Sunday],” she said.
However, that bit of a warm up won’t last for very long.
“Here comes the next Alberta Clipper system, a little bit of snow tonight, and then here comes that next arctic blast,” Emery said. “As we head through Monday into Tuesday, the first wave of cold air arrives. By Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, that’s when we’ll really feel that deep freeze.”
After Monday, with a high of 32 and a chance of a morning snow shower, the temperature will fall. Emery says Tuesday’s high will only reach 15 degrees.
That deep freeze will then last through Friday.
