Brief Midweek Warm Up Then Back to Cold
After a bitterly cold Tuesday, milder air will surge back into eastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania on Wednesday. Temperatures will end up in the lower 40s by the end of the afternoon. A veil of high clouds will dim the sun most of the day.
Snow showers will visit at times Wednesday night into Thursday and rain will mix in on a few occasions. The next arctic cold front is set to arrive Thursday evening with another round of snow showers and rapidly falling temperatures. We'll have to watch for a rapid freeze up and black ice overnight as temperatures plunge into the lower teens.
A frigid Friday will be followed by a cold weekend. Accumulating snow will be possible Saturday afternoon into early Sunday.
