The region's respite from snow is over, said meteorologist Lee Hendricks.
Another inch or two of the white stuff is expected to accumulate this afternoon, according to the forecaster with the National Weather Service at Pittsburgh.
"The way it's looking, we're going to start getting more snow starting around lunchtime," Mr. Hendricks said this morning from his office in Moon.
That will be on top of an inch or so that fell overnight in the northern reaches of the weather service's region.
While the accumulation will taper off as the day wanes, Mr. Hendricks said there's a 50 percent chance of snow flurries through the evening in Pittsburgh and its surrounds. The temperature will drop to about 12 degrees overnight.
Monday will be partly sunny in the afternoon with a 40 percent chance of snow showers and a high around 20 degrees. The low will not even hit double digits; "We're talking about 4 degrees," Mr. Hendricks said.
He offered a little hope to hang onto; "Things will start warming up in the middle of the week, if that helps."
