Pittsburgh/Western Pa Weather

Recommended Posts

I had another fresh inch of wet snow caked on everything again this morning.

It was snowing silver dollar flakes when I went to sleep after midnight last night.

This is getting ridiculous.

If you think that is ridiculous check what the GFS is spitting out for next week: :lmao:

Not a monster storm, but that would likely have some frozen with it.....

Hey, it could happen. It was about this time last week that I started bringing up this week's storm. Yeah, not overly impressive but maybe some more accumulating snow depending on the timing of it.

Looking at the extended, after early next week of cold and snow showers the weekend of the 6th on has mostly 60's and 70's. I hope it holds up. Can't wait.

I hope it does too, because I'm on vacation that week. Let this winter end and on to spring. It was an eventful winter. A lot of snow overall for the season. No huge storms, at least imby, but several moderate events. Now, time for some warmth and severe weather tracking.....after early next week.

Forgot to mention...should be fun seeing snowflakes in the air during the Pirates' home-opener on Monday.

Getting a pretty decent snow shower here in Greensburg right now. Light dusting on the grass even...

Looks like things could get active today and tomorrow. We have some activity to our west in Ohio. Most of it is staying north it seems but maybe a sign of things to come through tomorrow. Temps are already close to 80 out there.
