We were between two systems today. After some breaks of sunshine early then clouds increased. This is all ahead of a cold front that will pass off to our east early tonight. Behind the front, it will become blustery and colder the rest of tonight with scattered flurries and snow showers. There will be little or no accumulation in most places but there will be a covering to an inch or two in some locations, especially through the higher elevations near and west of Route 219. Saturday will be blustery and much colder with variable cloudiness and scattered flurries and snow showers. Once again there will be little or no accumulation in most spots but a couple more inches are possible on some of the favored ridges in the Laurel Highlands. Sunday will be quite cold and windy with more clouds than sunshine and leftover flurries and snow showers. Temperatures will barely rise into the lower 20s with some of the higher elevations not getting out of the teens. A ridge of high pressure will give us a sunnier start to the work week. After a cold morning, the sunshine will help to boost temperatures back into the 30s Monday afternoon. The next front will bring more clouds with some rain and snow Tuesday before another blast of colder air on Wednesday. It will be windy Wednesday with flurries and snow showers. The mercury will start to rebound later next week.
