A series of weak storms will affect the Pittsburgh area this week ahead of another blast of arctic air.
A weather pattern favoring multiple weak storms originating from western Canada is in store. While the storms will be weak, they will stir up some wind.
Most of the storms will bring only periods of clouds and flurries. However, a small number of these storms can also bring periods of snow.
Following some light snow that ended early Sunday morning, there were a few slick spots causing slippery travel. An inch or 2 of snow is possible Monday night into Tuesday morning, creating the possibility of more slick spots around the region.
Arctic air returns on Monday night and still stick around through Thursday. High temperatures will only be in the low teens with nighttime lows fluctuating between the low single digits and 10 degrees.
Later in the month, frigid air that pushes southward over the Midwest will turn eastward and could alter the weak storm pattern to one that favors more potent storms and heavier snow.
Tropical moisture from the approaching Odile will deliver another round of heavy rain and flooding downpours to the interior Southwest by the middle of this week.
The remnants of Odile have the potential to bring heavy rain and flooding to parts of the Plains and Midwest late this week after hitting the Southwest.
