Snow begins after midnight, will remain steady through Friday morning commute

PITTSBURGH — Have the snow shovels ready as another round of steady snow heads our way later tonight. Snow will begin shortly after midnight, becoming heavy at times leading up to the morning commute. Temperatures will be in the mid to low 20s throughout the storm, which means snow won’t have any issues sticking.


Steady snow will transition to snow showers Friday afternoon, with additional light accumulation possible in spots. All in all, 2 to 5 inches of snow is expected through Friday night, with 5 to 8 inches east into the mountains. Snow showers could continue into Saturday morning, especially over those higher elevations, but by then, the main headline will turn to the temperature.

Wind chills Saturday will be near zero most of the day, dropping sub-zero at times especially north of Pittsburgh. If you hate the cold, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel with temperatures going back above freezing early next week. Another system could bring a wintry mix to some areas next Tuesday morning before highs head back into the 40s.
