Curtain call: Wintry blast due to hit Pa.
PITTSBURGH (AP) – A frigid, snowy winter is set to make a curtain call – at least in Western Pennsylvania – where rain is forecast to turn to snow as winds drive wind chills below zero when cold artic air collides with moisture arriving from the southwest.
The National Weather Service in Pittsburgh has issued a winter weather advisory for the western third of the state, where 2 to 4 inches of snow could fall Wednesday night into Thursday. Mostly rain is predicted from central Pennsylvania, Harrisburg and east toward Philadelphia.
The northwestern corner of the state, including Erie and Bradford, could receive 6 to 10 inches of snow.
Temperatures, which were in the 40s early Wednesday, were set to drop into the teens by Wednesday night, with gusty winds driving wind chills to minus-10 degrees or more early Thursday.
