You better bundle up this week as bitterly cold temperatures are expected to move into the Pittsburgh area.

Dennis Sims, a meteorologist at Air Science Consultants in Bridgeville, said that he expected the bitter temperatures to arrive in the South Hills on Tuesday.

Sims said the middle of the week would have lows in single digits and highs in the teens.

That forecast was backed up by the National Weather Service in Pittsburgh. Meteorologists there are also forecasting 1 to 3 inches of snow on Monday with a slight chance of snow Tuesday.

Look below to see a more detailed forecast…


Monday: Snow. High near 24. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible. Low around 7. Wind chill values as low as -8.

Tuesday: A chance of morning snow shower. Partly sunny, with a high near 11. Low around 5.

Wednesday: Partly sunny, with a high near 17. Low around 12.

Thursday: A slight chance of snow showers. Partly sunny, with a high near 27. Low around 2.

Friday: Snow, freezing rain, and sleet likely. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 30. Low around 20.

I just came across this report on the WPXI website. It's something that I totally agree with. According to them we would need 8 feet of snow to replenish the groundwater enough from the drought conditions of the past few years. Here's a couple quotes from the article: "Despite getting some big storms last month, much of the U.S. is still desperate for relief from the nation's longest dry spell in decades. And experts say it will take an absurd amount of snow to ease the woes of farmers and ranchers." 'Winter storms have dropped more than 15 inches of snow on parts of the Midwest and East in recent weeks. Climatologists say it would take at least 8 feet of snow — and likely far more — to return the soil to its pre-drought condition in time for spring planting. A foot of snow is roughly equal to an inch of water, depending on density." Read more at: http://www.wpxi.com/ap/ap/top-news/extraordinary-snowfall-needed-to-relieve-drought/nTkWf/
