The wild temperature ride will continue around Pittsburgh as the seasons officially change.

Temperatures are forecast to ease back as spring arrives Thursday afternoon.

Spring officially arrives Thursday afternoon.

The nicest day of the week will be Friday, when some sunshine will send temperatures well into the 50s. However, a passing shower is possible in the afternoon.

After a mild start, cooler air will move in on Saturday.

Even though the region will be officially done with winter, the weather may not abide by the change of seasons.

Another system is being watched for possible snow during the middle of next week over the mid-Atlantic and central Appalachians in general. However, at this early stage, the track, the dividing line between rain and snow, and the magnitude of the storm are uncertain.

Regardless of the storm potential, cold air will return next week.
