After what seemed like an endless Summer weather pattern for the eastern United States, the Fall chill has finally settled in. In fact, some areas seemed to have jumped ahead to Winter! On Sunday, many mountainous areas of the central and southern Appalachians witnessed their first snowfall of the season. Accumulations were generally light, with a dusting to a few inches being observed in the highest elevations of the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee.
By Monday morning, a few inches of snow are possible in the mountains of eastern West Virginia. Locations such as Snowshoe will share in on the wintry weather. Further north, some minor snow accumulations are possible in the higher terrain of Pennsylvania and New York.
Morning temperatures—where the sky clears—will be quite chilly. Temperatures are expected to bottom out in the 30s as far south as Florida!
Frost Advisories and Freeze Warnings have been posted from the Ohio Valley to the Gulf Coast.
Crank up the heat, enjoy a hot beverage, and stay warm!
