First thing first, it’s very cold today with teen lows and single digit chill winds. Highs only remain in the low 20s and feel in the teens for most of the day. Don’t forget to bring your pet indoors – It’s the law!

There is a Winter Storm Warning that begins at 1:00 p.m. Sunday and runs through 1:00 p.m. Monday.

Now, if you plan ahead, Sunday morning it will be cold in the teens again but it will be dry.

This colder air also makes it possible for our region to see all of the snow from Sunday night through Monday, and a lot of it for many people.

We’ll start seeing snow as early as 1 p.m. for areas south of I-70 and 3 p.m. for Pittsburgh.

Snow accumulates around dinner time and should end around Monday afternoon.

The totals are getting bigger, the confidence is getting bigger and yes, we rarely see this in Pittsburgh. Snow 8″ or more occurs only once every 4 years, and snow 12″ or more occurs every 14 years.

Right now, it looks like there’s a curve from Washington to Butler, cutting parts south of Allegheny, extending north of I-80 then back again toward Indiana County through Somerset and portions west Northern Maryland can see half a foot up of a foot of snow.

There is a dry rift and possibly even a brief period of freezing rain for Westmoreland, Greene and Fayette Counties, which can only achieve 4-9 less rain than surrounding areas .

Things can and will still change and we’ll be constantly adjusting our forecasts, but a lot of the models are starting to fit together.

The big concern is that NAM suggests warmer air overhead means less snow, but other models are pointing to colder temperatures below freezing.

Whether this is 5 inches of snow or heavy, the roads will be dangerous to ride on Sunday night throughout the first part of Monday.

No work and no school Monday, so if you don’t have to be on the road, stay indoors or go outside and play in the snow but try and be safe!
