PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Don’t be me and forget your jacket as you head off to work this morning.

Morning and afternoon temperatures will ONLY be around 40 degrees or less. Yikes! With temperatures so low, there will be a chance for snow through the morning and afternoon hours. Are you ready?

Severe weather chances have now ended for the day. Expect windy conditions to persist, however, as a trough on the back side of a cold front pulls in cold air. Temperatures will briefly dip into the 30s this morning before we get back into the 40s for afternoon temperatures. Light rain and even snow are expected for this morning. Obviously, nothing will stick when it comes to snow.

At this point, it will be more of a “Are you kidding me?” weather event than one that impacts anyone.

Wind speeds this afternoon will be in the mid- to low-20s. Wind gusts will likely approach 45 mph. There is a wind advisory to the east. If you are planning on taking the Pennsylvania Turnpike, the entire span of the turnpike east of the Laurel Highlands will be under the advisory.

For the rest of the week, expect warmer weather. Highs tomorrow will be in the low 60s. Most of us will have a dry day, but a few showers may try to materialize north of Pittsburgh. Otherwise, clouds and sunshine can be expected.

A flood advisory is in effect for the Ohio River until Tuesday evening. The river is expected to rise to almost 18.5 feet by Tuesday morning.

Again, Wednesday, a few showers will be around early. Temperatures will warm even more, too.

The warmest day of the week comes Thursday. It looks dry, as well.

Showers and storms return Friday, and the rain chances will carry us into the Easter weekend.
