Following the snowstorm that unleashed snow and ice on the Northeast, leaving many without power in southeastern Pennsylvania, the cold and snow will return to Pittsburgh to end the week.

After a frigid Wednesday night, black ice was a potential travel problem for the morning commute on Thursday.

However, some partly sunny skies Thursday afternoon, aided in melting some of the black ice.

Similar to Thursday, Friday will also be very cold with temperatures around 20 F. Those out driving should be aware of remaining ice. Overnight Friday, temperatures will fall into the single digits.

Anyone outdoors on Friday night should wear the proper layers and be aware that prolonged exposure to the cold can lead to cold-related illnesses such as hypothermia and frostbite.

For the weekend, Saturday and Sunday will feature temperatures in the mid-20s but snow may return to the city.

Some flurries are possible Saturday night, but a storm could bring more snow to the city on Sunday and Monday.

Looking forward to next week, temperatures will remain consistently in the 20s until Thursday, when the mercury will rise nearly 40 degrees and providing some relief from the bitter cold.
