This is the forecast that Indiana County expects, but not the one it needs right now: Snow. And cold. With lows in the mid-20s.
The National Weather Service in Pittsburgh is calling for the possibility of up to 3 inches of snow by Tuesday. If it comes to pass, it would be the region’s first widespread snowfall of the season.
The weather service said an Arctic cold front is approaching, bringing with it temperatures that will feel more like winter than mid-fall. Temperatures will remain well below normal through Tuesday and into Wednesday, it said, with highs in the low to mid-30s and lows in the 20s.
And with that front comes the possibility today of snow, beginning sometime after 9 p.m.
The weather service said it will likely start out as a mix of rain and snow and then switch to snow before midnight. A low of 25 degrees is expected. Tomorrow’s high is to be 32 degrees with a chance of snow.
