Some spotty drizzle, freezing fog, and snow showers / flurries are possible in spots on Sunday evening that could leave some slippery roads, bridges and overpasses tonight and tomorrow morning.

Otherwise it’s the calm before the storm. A fairly quiet Saturday evening and Valentine’s Day is on the way with persistent clouds and chilly temperatures.

The trouble comes late on Sunday evening and lasts until Tuesday afternoon. Very cold high pressure in the upper levels will interact with much of the moisture that is currently in the western half of the US

When it descends south, it sets off bringing rain, wintry mix and ice to the central Atlantic in our south and snow for us and areas in the north.

The question remains: How far north will this warmer air push and where will the switching line from rain / freezing rain / sleet be too simply old?

Heavy snow and high sums are possible and more likely from Pittsburgh north and west, especially Monday night through Tuesday.

Right now it looks like a couple of inches of snow early Monday through lunch and then the second, heavy surge of moisture that starts Monday evening through Tuesday.
