The season starts on Saturday and continues on Sunday, giving hunters off work and school a full weekend to be afield. Deer season closes on Dec. 5.

For hunters getting out, Saturday's weather is expected to stay dry with sunshine and highs around the 40s, but some snow showers are expected late Saturday into Sunday. Some areas north of the ridges could see 1 to 3 inches with Pittsburgh getting less than one inch.

Today will be a cold one with temperatures feeling in the 20s. Snow showers will taper off today with little to no snow...
