The first flakes could occur Thursday morning along the southern Pennsylvania border, but the more impactful precipitation will not begin until the evening.

A brief mix of freezing rain and sleet will impact Pittsburgh at that time before changing to all rain. Pittsburgh will likely spend most of this event in rain after we change from that mix. Some of the rain will be heavy.

North of Pittsburgh, the mix of rain, snow and freezing rain will linger. This could lead to some accumulation. However, rain does look to travel quite far north during Friday's early morning hours. This will likely squash down then wash away any accumulations.

Rain accumulations could add up to more than an inch again. This is leading to additional flooding concerns for Friday with river rises expected to carry into the weekend.
