PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — More snow is on the way, not just tonight, at the end of the weekend, we could see a large-scale winter storm system.

A winter weather advisory is in effect from 9 p.m. Thursday until 9 a.m. Friday for the ridges of Westmoreland County, the ridges of Fayette County, Garrett County and Preston County.

March begins Friday, but it is still winter, so we’re expecting some wintry weather. Snow showers will move into the area Thursday evening with the steadiest of the snow coming in around midnight.

The timing of this particular system is better than the past few, as it looks to wrap up well before sunrise.

Much of Friday will be quiet, and that goes for Saturday too.

More snow is expected on Sunday into Monday morning. If model data is all over the place today, and it is, you can only imagine what it’s like for Sunday. At this point, we cannot rule out a large-scale winter storm system that brings four inches or more of snow to the area widespread.

Finally, even though this weekend will be the first of March, cold weather will linger into the first week of the month. Look for highs in just the 20s with single digit wake-up temperatures starting on Monday and continuing through at least next Thursday.
