No one need worry about any white stuff corrupting the wearin’ of the green on St. Paddy’s Day.

Meteorologist Lee Hendricks with the National Weather Service at Pittsburgh said there’s not a flake of snow in the forecast for Monday or for any day afterward this week. Today, there’s a 20 percent chance of a bit of snow.

Meantime, the mercury won’t be climbing to any level near balmy.

In fact, Mr. Hendricks said temperatures continue to be below normal today and Monday.

While it will be mostly sunny this morning, turning to cloudy in the afternoon, the high for the day will only reach the low 30s.

On Monday, it will be mostly cloudy in the morning, followed by afternoon sunshine with a high around 40 degrees and the low in the lower 20s overnight.

“Normal highs would be around 49 with lows around 30,” he said, noting that this month has seen temperatures consistently about four degrees below normal each day.

A slight warm-up is expected mid-week when highs will rise to about the mid-50s.
