Gone are the 60-degree temperatures from Thursday, now replaced by high temperatures near the 32-degree mark.

The return of colder air was accompanied by a couple of inches of snow early Friday night with snowfall accumulations generally between 2 and 4 inches across the area.

As temperatures fall, a layer of ice may form underneath the snow, adding to driving and walking conditions.

The weekend will be cold around Pittsburgh with high temperatures within a few degrees of freezing.

After a break from precipitation on Saturday, another round of snow and a wintry mix is in the offing for Sunday.

The coldest air of the season so far may follow during the middle of next week.
