Cold weather will hold around Pittsburgh this week, while a major snowstorm affects the I-81 and I-95 corridors during much of Thursday.

Snow will reach portions of West Virginia, western Maryland and southwestern Pennsylvania starting Wednesday night. At this time, it appears the storm will stay just south and east of Pittsburgh but will reach the Laurel Mountains.

Light, intermittent snow will straddle Pittsburgh with no snow northwest and a few inches southeast.

Folks driving or flying to and from areas in the South or East Coast this week should expect delays.

A weak system moving in from the Midwest may bring a light accumulation of snow to the city and much of the area on Valentine's Day.

A thaw is forecast to begin next week.
