Chance of Snow Continues. Blowing Snow in Western PA Could Reduce Visibilities. Wind Chills Below 0 Continue Tonight.

Posted on
Looks like a bit of snow is tracking through the Mid-Atlantic adding a few more inches across PA. This risk of snow will continue in western PA, although not as steady as the overnight hours. This risk will shift north into Erie as much of western PA sees partly cloudy skies overall (yes the sun does exist). Snow will move into western PA later on Sunday as some sleet may mix in in parts of southwestern PA. Highs for western PA in the mid to upper 10s today will drop into the upper single digits to low 10s tomorrow before mid 20s to low 30s settle in on Sunday. Lows will be frigid tomorrow morning as values drop into the positive and negative single digits before bumping up into the positive single digits on Saturday night. 20s will occur on Sunday night. The DC Region could see some flurries early this morning before conditions start to dry out this afternoon. Mostly sunny skies will roll into the region on Saturday before clouds increase on Sunday. Highs in the low to mid 30s today will drop into the low to mid 20s tomorrow. Mid 30s will return on Sunday. Lows in the low to mid 10s tonight will rise into the mid to upper 10s on Saturday night before Sunday night brings in 20s and low 30s. Hope you have a fantastic weekend!
