Record Winter

22 Feb 2010, 1:03 pm

Pittsbugh, PA is on the brink of breaking an all-time record.  The most snow that Pittsburgh has ever recorded in one month is 40.2″.  That is January of 1978.  So far this year in the month of February, Pittsburgh has recieved a total 40.0″.  A system that is moving in to the Mid Atlantic region is posed to potentially bring more than 0.2″ of snow to Pittsburgh, which would mean the long standing record record is broken.  This system has been able to tap into gulf moisture and has already brought a couple of inches of snow to Chicago this morning and heavy snow continues to fall this afternoon in the southern portions of Michigan.  Graphic below shows model estimated snow totals in west Pennsylvania.
