Posted on

Looks like a break from the snow takes place over the next couple days but cold weather has already shifted back into western PA. Wind chills into the -10s are possible today and early tomorrow. Looks like clouds will decrease throughout the day in western PA before mostly sunny skies settle into the area on Saturday. A threat of snow will push into western PA on Sunday as 3-6″ of snow could occur in NW PA (higher risks possible) through Monday. More mixing is possible the further south of I-80 you go, with a coating to 2″ possible in the Pittsburgh area. Warmer risks could cut into snow totals while colder risks could increase snow totals, especially in SW PA. Highs will only rise into the upper single digits to mid 10s today as overnight lows drop into the positive and negative single digits. Mid 10s to low 20s will push in on Saturday before lows dip into the 10s and low 20s during the night. Highs in the 30s are expected on Sunday before lows Sunday night before lows dip into the upper 20s and low 30s Sunday night. The DC Region will see partly sunny skies today before mostly sunny skies move in on Saturday. A chance of rain and snow will move in later on Sunday. Highs will hold steady in the low to mid 30s today before upper 20s to low 30s push in on Saturday mid 30s to low 40s settle in on Sunday. Lows in the 10s tonight will rise into the mid 10s to low 20s Saturday night before temperatures hold steady in the mid 30s Sunday night. Hope you all have a lovely weekend! Enjoy yourselves folks!
