Say It Ain’t Snow

The cold will arrive today  as temperatures decline throughout the day in western PA. It’ll feel like Winter again (although April seems to continue Winter in some parts of PA anyways). Rain will also be felt across the region before areas in PA see a threat of snow mix in with the rain. No significant accumulations are expected, but a 1-3″ could be seen in the Erie region (because it’s Erie). Conditions will clear out on Wednesday and Thursday, but cold temperatures will linger on Wednesday. Thursday will warm back up a bit. The risk of wet weather will return this weekend. Have a great two-for-Tuesday.
