Say it Ain't Snow: Hazardous Outlook Issued for Sewickley Valley
The National Weather Service, predicting cold and snow, issues hazardous weather outlook for Allegheny County.
Despite the arrival of spring on Wednesday, the National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for southwestern Pennsylvania—including Allegheny, Butler and Beaver counties—warning of potential widespread snow later Sunday into Monday.
The extent of the snowfall is still very much in question.
The weather service said the amount of snow isn't certain given the differences in model tracks and surface temperature projections.
The hazardous weather outlook also applies to northwestern and west-central Pennsylvania, western Maryland, east-central Ohio, northern West Virginia and the northern panhandle of West Virginia.
Here what's in the National Weather Service forecast:
- Saturday—Sunny, with a high near 41. Calm wind becoming northwest around 6 mph in the afternoon.
- Saturday Night—Mostly clear, with a low around 25. Northeast wind around 6 mph.
- Sunday—Partly sunny, with a high near 36. Northeast wind around 10 mph.
- Sunday Night—Snow, mainly after 11pm. Low around 29. East wind around 9 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100 percent.
- Monday—Snow. High near 36. Chance of precipitation is 100 percent.
- Monday Night—Snow showers likely, mainly before 7pm. Cloudy, with a low around 27. Chance of precipitation is 60 percent.
