PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Bands of lake effect snow will continue to impact the western Pennsylvania region throughout the day.

Snow accumulation will be minor through tonight in Pittsburgh and counties to the south with perhaps an inch or two.

However, not very far to the north and east, heavier amounts have been experienced and more will fall in those areas.

KDKA Meteorologist Dennis Bowman is forecasting three to six inches of new snow through tonight in Lawrence, Butler, Armstrong and Indiana counties.

He says four to eight inches could blanket the counties farther north.

Also, six to 10 inches of new snow could fall in the Laurel Highlands, including Garrett County, Md. Morgantown will probably be in the two to five inch range.

The other issue will be blustery conditions with rough wind chills.

High temperatures will range through the mid and upper 20s today with wind chills in the low teens much of the time as west and NW winds gust at 15 to 30 miles per hour.

Some additional snow is likely Tuesday, especially through early afternoon, and then a break in the action is likely for mid-week.

Temperatures will remain very cold until about Friday, when we should be back to near 40.
