WEBVTT CAUSE. CAM: IT IS SO CALLED THIS MORNING. WE ARE LOOKING AT SOME SNOW ON THE HORIZON. LET’S TAKE OUR LIFE LOOK, WE ARE — LET’S TAKE A LIVE LOOK. IT IS 23 DEGREES IN PITTSBURGH. WE HAVE A SIX MILE-PER-HOUR WIND , WHICH IS JUST ENOUGH TO BRING THE WIND CHILL DOWN INTO THE TEENS. IT IS A COLD ONE THIS MORNING. WE ARE LOOKING AT DRY CONDITIONS BUT THERE IS SNOW JUST OFF OUR DOORSTEP TO THE SOUTH AND WEST. IT IS ALL PART OF THIS BIG STORM SYSTEM THAT IS COMING TO THE SOUTH AND WEST. IT I OVER EASTERN PORTIONS OF KANSAS AND MISSOURI. WE WILL DEAL WITH THE NORTHERN FRINGE OF THE STORM, THAT WILL BRING US TO SNOW THROUGHOUT THE DAY TODAY. BY LUNCHTIME, I KNOW FUTURECAST IS NOT PICKING UP ON IT BUT I EXPECT THE SNOW TO REACH OUR SOUTHERN COUNTIES BY NOON. INCLUDING AREAS OF GREENE COUNTY BY LUNCHTIME. AROUND 2:00, IT WILL REACH PITTSBURGH. FUTURECAST IS REALLY SLOWING THIS DOWN, BUT I THINK IT WILL BE FASTER. AS WE GET AROUND 4:00, THAT’S NO WILL REACH THE I-80 CORRIDOR AROUND 5:00 THIS EVENING. THAT SNOW IS COMING FROM SOUTH TO NORTH. MY 6:00, WE HAVE WIDESPREAD SNOW FROM I-80 SOUTHWARD. THAT SNOW WILL CONTINUE TO PUSH NORTH THROUGH THE EVENING. FOLKS NORTH OF I-80 BY 10:00 WILL BE DEALING WITH THE SNOW. WE WILL CONTINUE TO SEE SNOW SHOWERS OVERNIGHT, EVEN INTO SUNDAY MORNING. MOST OF THE SNOW WILL CLEAR ON OUT FROM AREAS NORTH OF PITTSBURGH. AROUND 9:30, WE COULD STILL SEE SOME FLAKES FALLING SOUTH. WE COULD SEE SOME LINGERING SNOW SHOWERS, MOST OF US SHOULD BE DRYING OUT THE SECOND HALF OF OUR SUNDAY. AS WE GO BACK TO WORK ON MONDAY, WE WILL SEE SKIES CLEAR ON OUT. BECAUSE THIS SYSTEM IS COMING IN FROM THE SOUTH, THAT IS WHERE WE WILL SEE THE BULK OF THE HEAVIER SNOWFALL. WE ARE LOOKING AT TWO TO FOUR INCHES AT THE I-70 CORRIDOR SOUTHWARD AND FOR AREAS AROUND PITTSBURGH TO THE NORTH, ONE TO THREE INCHES. AS THE SYSTEM HEADS NORTH, IT WILL RUN INTO A LOT OF DRY AIR SO THERE WON’T BE MUCH ACCUMULATION FOR THE FOLKS ON THE I-80 CORRIDOR. TODAY, WE ARE LOOKING AT MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES WITH SNOW SHOWERS COMING IN THE AFTERNOON AND CONTINUING THROUGH THE EVENING. TEMPERATURES ARE IN THE 30’S BUT THEY FEEL LIKE THE 20’S WITH THE WIND CHILL. DURING THE OVERNIGHT HOURS, THE SNOWFALL CONTINUE.
