In Western Pennsylvania, it'll be spring in name only
Winter isn't giving up.
Although Thursday marks the start of spring, temperatures in Western Pennsylvania could slip below normal next week, National Weather Service meteorologist Brad Rehak said. Measurable snow, a couple of inches, is possible on Monday or Tuesday.
Below-normal temperatures are expected on Sunday and through midweek, with highs in the 30s. Typical high temperatures hover in the low 50s in late March, he said.
The forecast for Thursday is cloudy and 44 degrees, according to the weather service.
Cooler air is likely through early April, and snow remains a possibility, Rehak said.
AccuWeather predicts a break for opening-day baseball games in Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Chicago and New York on March 31.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
