Winter storm warnings, advisories issued across Pittsburgh region ahead of weekend snow – WPXI

PITTSBURGH — Allow extra time to clean off your car and shovel your sidewalk Saturday, as a powerful system is giving us a winter rewind.

Snow will fall steadily overnight, with periods of moderate to heavy snow making it hard for road crews to keep up. By sunrise, the steadiest snow will taper to snow showers and flurries, but most areas will have at least 3 to 5 inches of new snow to deal with. A band of higher totals is possible in spots, especially south and east of Pittsburgh.

Colder temperatures and wind will be the weather headline for the daytime Saturday, with wind chills forecast to dip into the single digits. You’ll need winter coats, hats, gloves, and hand warmers if you’re headed to sled or the St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

Any snow that melts will refreeze late Saturday into Sunday as temperatures fall into the teens. Another quick-moving system will bring a few snow showers during the day Sunday, but any additional accumulation will be light.

Stay with Severe Weather Team 11 as we update the timing and amounts of the heaviest snow.
