About another inch of snow will blanket the Pittsburgh region today but a meteorologist with the National Weather Service at Pittsburgh called it a "fairly vanilla day compared to what's been going on lately."
A day after Mother Nature left local roadways slick with ice and snow, today's weather forecast is "vanilla," said meteorologist Lee Hendricks from his office in Moon. The high temperature will be in the mid-20s and some flurries will linger through the evening. The low will be about 9 degrees, he said.
Monday will feature a high around 30 degrees but conditions will become tricky late that night and into early Tuesday when, depending on where you live, you may face rain, freezing rain or snow. "Within a distance of say 10 miles, it will vary. Trying to be precise isn't possible,'' Mr. Hendricks said. By the Tuesday morning commute, most of the region will be seeing some snow with no additional accumulation expected.
A slight warming trend will begin Tuesday, as the mercury climbs to a high in the upper 30s followed by temperatures in the mid-40s on Wednesday and the low 50s on Thursday. Rain will accompany those raising temperatures, Mr. Hendricks said.
