It will feel more like Thanksgiving around the Pittsburgh area through the end of the week and some locations will continue to receive some snow as well.

As the coldest air of the season so far flows across the Great Lakes and into the Ohio Valley and Appalachians, wet snowflakes can mix in at times along with chilly rain showers.

Grassy surfaces in the Laurel Highlands will be whitened every now and then through Friday. The highest elevations can pick up a several inches of snow.

While most roads will be just wet, there can be a few slushy spots over the highest terrain, especially on bridges and overpasses. Slippery travel is most likely from the late evening to the first few hours of daylight. The snow will tend to melt during the midday and afternoon.

Temperatures over the weekend will nudge into the 50s but will still remain below the normal of 60.
