Southwestern Pennsylvanians will likely see a return of snow to the region late Sunday afternoon that could result in two inches of snow by Monday morning, according to forecasters at the National Weather Service in Moon.

Shannon Hefferan, a meteorologist, said Pittsburgh area residents can expect a new weather system to arrive between 4 to 6 p.m. Sunday and drop between 1-to-2 inches of snow on the region through 9 a.m. Monday.

Although many area residents woke up to temperatures in the teens Sunday, she said temperatures should climb to the mid-30s or “near freezing as the new system arrives later this afternoon.”

The overnight low will be about 29 degrees, the agency reported.

“Areas south of Interstate 70 could be a little warmer and they could see a wintry mix of rain and snow. And there could be some freezing rain after midnight in some locations,” she said.

“There are concerns for ice in the ridges east of Pittsburgh and north of Interstate 80 on Monday,” Hefferan said.

Later Monday, Hefferan said a second system with mostly rain will arrive in the Pittsburgh area and possibly turn to snow by Wednesday morning.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
