PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Clouds and a few scattered showers will persist on this first full day of spring, but temperatures will reach normal seasonable highs in the lower 50s.

The rain will mostly be nuisance showers as we’re only expecting between .10 and .25 inches of precipitation.

With low pressure to our East and high pressure just to our West, we will have the setup for gusty, northwesterly winds.

This will drag down colder air and leave us with snow and rain for the end of the work week.

The gusty winds will also make the “feels like” temperatures in the lower 30s.

Friday morning brings a push of chillier air in that will turn those rain showers into some wet snow showers early to mid-morning. We could see a coating of snow in spots and up to 1 inch in the higher elevations of the Laurel Mountains.

The snow will be short-lived, though, as temperatures warm into the 40s by lunch Friday and the snow showers end as rain showers by late afternoon.

The weekend will start off bright, but Saturday’s temperatures will remain below average.

We’ll see that change, Sunday. Highs will reach into the mid to upper 50s.

This will be the start of a very spring-like week.

The only exception will be a cooler than average Tuesday.
