Wind chills below 0, cold remains throughout day; Warm-up tomorrow



PITTSBURGH -  Temperatures were, once again, dangerously low Thursday morning with wind chills reaching minus 15 in some spots.

While the cold temperatures are expected to last throughout the day, a warm up for Friday is coming.

Severe Weather Team meteorologist Valerie Smock said a wind chill advisory is in effect for the entire Channel 11 viewing area until noon.

Wind gusts can reach up to 35 mph, with wind chills dipping to minus 10 to minus 15 degrees.

A flood warning is also in effect for Forest, Clarion, Armstrong and Jefferson counties until 8 p.m. An ice jam below Parker, combined with runoff from recent rain may cause a rapid rise on the Allegheny River.

“Any leftover flurries should wrap up this morning and sunshine will return. Keep in mind it will remain breezy throughout the day with gusts as high as 25 mph. Tonight we fall into the upper teens with partly cloudy skies,” Smock said.

 Friday brings clouds and sun, as well as much milder weather. The high will reach 53.
