First snow fell even if it melted quickly
Today marks the first snowfall across the Pittsburgh region even if there was nothing noticeable on the lawn this morning.
A trace of snow was recorded at about 3 a.m., National Weather Service meteorologist Shannon Hefferan said. Areas of higher elevation, like Garrett County, MD, and Canaan Valley, WV, saw between two and four inches fall.
Forecasters expect a warmer, dry week.
Locally, there are no snowflakes in the forecast, Hefferan said. Some areas, including Butler, are seeing rain and temperatures in most areas will climb.
“Dry air is coming in and really, we are putting the next chance of rain for Oct. 28,” she said.
Temperatures should be a bit warmer on Monday, with a high of about 55 degrees and then linger in the upper-40s at the end of the week.
