Frigid weather will dominate the Pittsburgh area through Friday.

Temperatures Friday morning challenged the record low temperature of minus 1 F set in 1934.

Temperatures are projected to average 20 to 30 degrees below the normal high of 43 F for late February.

The city and much of the Northeast are forecast to be in for wintry precipitation beginning this weekend.

The heaviest snow, ice and rain are likely Sunday into Monday.

Until then, episodes of snow will generally be light and more of a nuisance.

Another push of cold air will follow.

The details on the storm, timing and which forms of precipitation are likely to dominate will follow in the days ahead.
