You Might Not Like These Predictions About Pittsburgh’s Snowy Upcoming Winter
Winter’s right around the corner! Chances are you’re either already counting down the days until spring 2022, or you love the snowy days of winter. The Farmers’ Almanac recently came out with its forecast for the 2021-22 winter. The winter predictions for Pittsburgh include several snowstorms, including one that might rival the Blizzards of ’93 and ’96.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Winter in Pittsburgh the last few years didn’t bring much snow with it. However, that could all change during the winter of 2021-22, if the Farmers’ Almanac’s predictions prove true.
Snow isn’t expected to make its debut until early December, between the fourth and the seventh, when a snowstorm has been forecasted for the Mid-Atlantic.
Winter itself ushers in with cold rain and cloudy skies. If we’re lucky, we might see a few snow flurries for Christmas. However, temperatures over the Christmas holiday are predicted to be bitterly cold.
Those frigid temperatures are expected to give way to warmer air just in time to head downtown to ring in the New Year on First Night. January just might bring with it the first significant snowfall of the season.
The Farmers’ Almanac predicts a snowstorm that could produce between four and eight inches of snow throughout Pennsylvania from January 8-11, 2022. Precipitation for the rest of the month, however, is expected to be in the form of rain.
Start preparing for a potentially epic snowstorm in February. The month kicks off with bitterly cold temperatures. While light snow is in the forecast here and there, there’s nothing significant until February 24-28, 2022.
A massive snowstorm is expected to sweep through the Ohio Valley, and Pittsburgh sits directly in its path. If predictions are true, the storm could bring up to two feet of snow to the region.
March comes in like a lion – well, sort of – with some snowy days and the potential for another, less significant, snowstorm from March 12-15, 2022.
Pull out the shorts for the first day of spring on March 20, when temperatures are expected to be mild. Snow isn’t mentioned at all in the forecast for the rest of March or April.
