The National Weather Service has canceled a winter weather advisory for the Pittsburgh area.
An alert went out at 2:55 p.m. that temperatures have risen above freezing and Pittsburgh has seen the worst of today's snowfall. Any additional snow coming throughout the night "is not expected to be significant," according to the alert.
The storm was expected to bring 2 to 4 inches.
“By 2-ish, the heavier snow will have already moved out,” said Lee Hendricks, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.
Outlying areas might get slightly more snow, as the temperatures stay lower throughout the day.
“It’s not looking like it’s going to be outrageous,” Mr. Hendricks said. “Potentially, in Indiana County and the ridges of Westmoreland they could end up with 3 to 7 inches at the most.”
Sunday will be windy, with a high around 30 and no precipitation expected during the day. Sunday night, temperatures drop to a low of 13, with a 40 percent chance of snow showers.
A high in the lower 20s is expected for Monday, with cloudy skies.
“If we can get past the misery of today, life will be good,” Mr. Hendricks said.
