Frigid temps remain, wind chill advisory expires; Warm-up headed our way



PITTSBURGH - While temperatures will remain frigid Wednesday, there is a warm-up headed our way for the end of the week and the weekend.

A wind chill warning and advisory for all counties in the Channel 11 viewing area expired at 9 a.m. Wednesday, bringing an end to a historic 2-day stretch of wind chill temps below zero.

Severe Weather Team meteorologist Valerie Smock said temperatures will reach the 20s by afternoon.

Snow showers are expected to develop late in the day, with a coating to a possible one inch of snow by Thursday.

“With ground temps still cold, anything that falls will stick so slick spots are possible,” Smock said.

Another quick system may drop a coating of snow Thursday with a break in the forecast Friday. Rain moves in for Saturday with much warmer weather for the week's end.
