Winter Weather Update: Is More Snow on the Way for New Year's Eve?

How should you dress for New Year's Eve? If you're planning to be outdoors that night, better bundle up and remember your boots. Same goes for New Year's Day.

Making plans for a New Year's celebration? Better dress for snow, especially if you plan to be outdoors after 7 p.m. on New Year's Eve or through the morning on New Year's Day.

There's a chance folks around Western Pennsylvania will see snow fall before then, but the accumulation will be less than 2 inches through the day Monday, according to the National Weather Service in Moon Township. 

Come Monday night, though, the weather service predicts we'll be likely to see more snow start to fall after 7 p.m.—around the time many of us will be heading out for First Night Downtown, fancy revelry elsewhere or a neighborhood bash.

Here is the latest forecast from the weather service:

Overnight: Light snow likely, mainly before 5 a.m. Cloudy, with a low around 23. West wind 7 to 11 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70 percent. Total nighttime snow accumulation of less than one inch possible. 

Sunday: Scattered snow showers, mainly before 11 a.m. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 29. West wind 11 to 16 mph. Chance of precipitation is 50 percent. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible. 

Sunday Night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 18. West wind 6 to 8 mph. 

Monday, New Year's Eve: A chance of snow, mainly after 3 p.m. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 33. Southwest wind 9 to 11 mph. Chance of precipitation is 30 percent.

Monday Night, New Year's Eve: Snow likely, mainly after 8 p.m. Cloudy, with a low around 28. Southwest wind around 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60 percent.

Tuesday, New Year's Day: Snow likely, mainly before 8 a.m. Cloudy, with a high near 31. Chance of precipitation is 60 percent.

Tuesday Night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 12.
