    Arctic Cold to Invade Pittsburgh, Pa., Bringing Snow

    By By Alex Sosnowski, expert senior meteorologist.

    Arctic air will blast the region early this week, accompanied by a period of snow.

    The coldest air of the season so far will roll into western Pennsylvania, West Virgina, western Maryland and Ohio by early Tuesday.

    High temperatures will fail to climb to the 40-degree mark on Tuesday and Wednesday. Gusty winds will contribute to AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures in the upper 20s.

    Overnight lows will plummet into the 20s, so people will want to bundle up.

    The initial blast of arctic air will be accompanied by a band of rain that will change to snow Monday night. The snow will accumulate a coating to an inch, potentially leading to some slick spots on roads. That is especially true on bridges and overpasses.

    As even colder air settles into the region on Tuesday, some lake-effect snow showers will occur.
