He may not be here for another two months, but old man Winter made a brief appearance in Pennsylvania Sunday.
The National Weather Service posted the following message on their Facebook page:
According to NBC10 First Alert Weather Meteorologist Michelle Grossman, the code “SNB09E20” indicates that snow flurries fell in Mount Pocono for 11 minutes Sunday morning, making it the first snowfall of the season in Pennsylvania.
As for the Philadelphia area, while we didn’t see any of the white stuff, strong winds and colder temperatures caused many to grab their jackets. Temperatures were in the mid-50’s during the day but will drop into the 30’s Sunday night into Monday morning. Philadelphia is in for a low of 38 degrees while temperatures will drop to about 32 degrees in the north and west suburbs.
If you still have your plants outside, make sure you bring them indoors. A frost advisory will be in effect for parts of Gloucester, Camden, Burlington, Cape May, Chester, Montgomery and Bucks counties from 2 a.m. to 8 a.m.
A freeze warning will also be in effect from 4 a.m. to 8 a.m. in parts of Ocean, Cumberland, Atlantic and Burlington counties.
As for the rest of the week, we’re in for a mixture of rain and sunshine as well as typical Fall temperatures ranging from the mid-50’s to low 60’s. Yet as we were reminded for a brief moment Sunday, winter isn’t too far away.
