Bitter cold is in the offing for the Pittsburgh area.

The latest Alberta Clipper storm brought some snow on Sunday. Combined with gusty winds and episodes of snow, RealFeel® temperatures dipped below zero at times.

More snow showers are on the way for Monday in the wake of an arctic front that moved through late Sunday night. Temperatures will hover in the mid teens through most of the day with RealFeel® temperatures below zero.

Monday may be a record-challenging day with a low approaching the 1977 record of minus 10 F. The temperature may not get above 0 F on Tuesday; the low is expected to be about minus 9 F.

Wednesday will also be bitterly cold with a high of 13 and a low of minus 3.

Temperatures will start to moderate on Thursday with a high in the upper 20s. It will be in the low 30s on Friday.
