Cold weather for Pittsburgh during the balance of this week will lead to additional spotty episodes of snow.

Indications are that winter will be in no hurry to leave. Waves of arctic air and the polar vortex sinking southward will make for a cold end to February and start to March.

Wednesday through Friday, high temperatures are forecast to be in the upper teens to near 20 F. A high close to 43 F is more common in Pittsburgh this time of year.

Brisk winds will create even lower AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures.

During Tuesday, a fast-moving storm brought accumulating snow to areas mainly south of the Mason-Dixon Line.

After the spotty coating of snow early Wednesday, another weak system could bring spotty accumulating snow on Thursday and Saturday.
