The cold front that moved through last night is now well to our east. Cold air is spreading eastward across northwestern Pennsylvania this morning in the wake of the front.
An upper level trough will deepen across the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley today. A weak disturbance will rotate through the trough and across the Erie area later today and tonight. This will lead to the development of scattered rain showers this afternoon. It will remain breezy today as well with high temperatures in Erie reaching the mid 40’s.
Tonight, the cold air over the region will deepen as the disturbance moves through. Scattered rain showers will transition to lake effect showers this evening. As temperatures cool, rain will change to snow in most inland areas. In the city and along the immediate lake shore, a mix of rain and snow will persist overnight. Overnight lows will be around 30 degrees inland to the mid 30’s along the lake shore.
Snow accumulations are possible tonight across the inland areas. A few locations could pick up 1 to 3 inches overnight.
Veteran’s Day will be breezy and cold in Erie with rain and snow showers lingering through the morning. High pressure will begin to build across the area during the afternoon with drier air helping to end the precipitation. Highs will once again be in the mid 40’s.
Sunshine and milder temperatures are expected on Saturday as the high moves overhead. Unsettled weather will return by early next week.
