Sunshine returns Thursday, temperatures will near 40

PITTSBURGH — Grab the winter coat and head outdoors Thursday and enjoy another rare day with some winter sunshine. Temperatures will climb back near 40 and wind chills will not be quite as low.

Things will change quickly Thursday night as an Arctic blast of air heads our way. The first impacts will come with scattered snow showers continuing through the morning commute. Snow will not be heavy, but because of the cold temperatures any snow that falls will stick. Scattered snow showers will be possible off and on through Friday.

The bigger impacts will come with the brutal cold and strong winds. The combination will cap high temperatures in the teens on Friday with wind chills near or below zero at times.
