Rain is turning to snow across parts of our area Sunday afternoon and I expect this transition to take place in the Pittsburgh area through the evening hours. Temperatures continue to drop and the winds are staying strong so you’ll need to bundle up if you’re heading outdoors.
Snow showers are expected to continue Sunday night and into Monday morning. Lake-effect snow bands look to set up, especially across northern counties where some of the heaviest snow totals will be. Initially, snow will melt but then it will stick as temperatures drop overnight so drive with caution Sunday night and into Monday morning.
Monday morning will bring scattered snow showers which could reduce visibility in the heaviest bands. Some slick spots will develop, especially along the I-80 corridor where several inches of snow are forecast. Wind chills will be in the teens and low 20s in the morning so dress warmly.
Some breaks in the clouds are expected through the day Monday but it will stay cold and windy with highs only in the low 40s.
