    Cold Air, Maybe Snow Headed Back to Pittsburgh

    It has been a long, cold winter in the Pittsburgh area, and another cold blast is on the way.

    Temperatures since December have averaged 3.4 degrees below normal around Pittsburgh. During the past several months, more than the average amount of snow has fallen with 62.3 inches of snow so far, compared to a normal to date of 38.9 inches.

    Moving forward after a mild start to spring, the weather will offer more setbacks for folks wanting warmth and to end their relationship with winter gear.

    While the cold (and frozen) waters of the Great Lakes tend to slow the progression of seasons around the area, the spring warmup is likely to be delayed a bit more by persistent outbreaks of air from Canada.

    One such cold blast will hold temperatures to the middle 30s both Sunday and Monday.

    Another storm is being watched for possible snow across the Northeast by midweek.

    Current indications point toward Pittsburgh escaping the worst of the storm, which could evolve into a blizzard across eastern New England. The city could still see some snow fall on Tuesday.
