In Western Pennsylvania, it'll be spring in name only

Wednesday, March 19, 2014, 11:24 p.m.
 

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.
