PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – All eyes continue to be on a potentially big weekend snow storm.

What we do know is that there is a winter storm system brewing down south and heading our way Friday into Saturday.

According to KDKA-TV Meteorologist Kristin Emery, someone will see big snow totals. However, it’s still too early to definitively say who will get the worst of it.

Recent computer models have favored a more southerly track to the storm’s energy, which would limit our snowfall potential from Pittsburgh north and west. But, it’s still early and there are still many model runs to go and tweaks to the storm track to come.

If the current thinking holds true, there could be significant snowfall from Interstate 70 and south, with some areas in the Laurels and Ridges and into West Virginia and Maryland seeing 6-plus inches of snow, with possibly up to one or two feet.

A sharp cutoff of snow could also happen from Pittsburgh to Wheeling, north and west seeing little to no accumulation.

Generally, the early thinking is that areas to the north will be impacted the least. The general Pittsburgh area could be looking at anywhere between 2 to 4 inches of snow and areas along and south of I-70 could see 6 inches or more.

Again, that’s an early ballpark outline and it could change. KDKA-TV will continue to provide updates as the system’s path becomes clearer.

Before that system arrives, a quick shot of snow showers and flurries will arrive Wednesday afternoon. Emery expects a coating to an inch of snow around our region by mid-evening with the Laurels and Ridges and down into Garrett County, Maryland, seeing up to 2 inches by later tonight.

That’s great news for the ski resorts, but could make for a slippery evening commute and late evening travel.

Thursday will remain dry and a bit warmer with a high of 26 degrees.
