    Sunday Snow to Create Slick Travel Around Pittsburgh

    Even in the absence of a major winter storm, accumulating snow still threatens to cause problems for travelers around Pittsburgh this weekend.

    After light flakes Saturday evening, steadier snow arrives for the second half of the weekend.

    A fresh inch or two of snow is expected. Odds favor the majority of that snow occurring during the midday hours of Sunday.

    The Laurel Highlands to the east could see amounts closer to 3 inches.

    While not a significant event, a couple inches of snow is still enough to cause slick travel. Motorists should also prepare for a period of reduced visibility.

    In the wake of the snow, fresh frigid air will arrive for Monday as a few flurries fly.

    Temperatures will be held to the lower 20s on Monday. Howling winds will not usher in the arctic air, but a slight breeze will still create AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures in the teens.

    The cold will persist through Tuesday, when temperatures will struggle to climb to the 20-degree mark.

    Later in the week, a Southern storm will have to be watched for possible impacts in the Northeast due to snow, ice and rain before Valentine's Day.

    Any accumulating snow will add to the winter's already above-normal snow total in Pittsburgh. The city has received 47.0 inches of snow through Friday, above the 41.9 inches that typically falls each winter.
