PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for much of the area through Sunday evening as snow continues to fall across the area.

The advisory remains in effect through 7 p.m. Sunday.

The period of most intense snowfall is expected between late Sunday morning and into early Sunday afternoon with an additional one to three inches.

KDKA’s Jon Burnett says it will be mostly cloudy tonight with occasional snow and flurries and an overnight low of 20 degrees.

“We have had light to moderate snow showers pretty much since the noon hour today, if not a little earlier, and you can see its movement almost exclusively west to east with a slight southeasterly slant to it,” said Burnett. “These snow showers will continue overnight tapering to flurries after midnight and then regenerating, restoring themselves, if you will, [Sunday] as another little wave of energy comes diving down out of Canada, across the lakes and into the Ohio Valley.”

Burnett says we can expect that pattern to continue through the middle part of next week.

“Little Alberta Clippers that just produce enough lift to create those nuisance snow showers on the order of one to two inches every day with a few flurries overnight and a little more cranks up the next day,” said Burnett. “And again, that pattern is going to continue right into the middle part of the upcoming work week.”

Burnett says Sunday we can expect a high of 26 degrees.
