PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – First of all, I would like to wish you a happy Thanksgiving. I hope you are surrounded by love.
Let’s talk about your vacation weather forecast. Today’s highs will likely be reached when we sit at around 48 degrees this morning. For the rest of the day the temperatures will be between mid and over 40s. The probabilities of rain are sporadic this morning and scattered this afternoon. The rain totals will likely only be about a tenth of an inch or less.

Shortly after midnight we will see a change from rain to snow as cold air pours in from the northwest.
Dates I see in points at 2 “-3” snow are possible in a large part of the area in the laurels.
Other locations affected by potential snow accumulation will be portions of the snow belt, including northern counties of Indiana and northern Armstrong, and locations north of I-80 where a major lake effect snow event is expected.
I spoke to the NWS Pittsburgh offices this morning and they see that the snow totals are more in line with an inch and a half for the next day and a half.

This is just below the criteria for winter weather advice.
If their forecast totals increase, a recommendation may be issued. In any case, be careful when you set out on the trail.
There will be light snow in places on Friday afternoons, but most should be dry or, in the worst case, just thunderstorms. The temperatures stay cool until the weekend, with highs on Friday and Saturday around 40 degrees.
We’ll have another chance of snow from Sunday through Monday, with a few inches of snow falling in Pittsburgh, but with temperatures around 32 I don’t expect much snow to remain after an hour or so.
