Pittsburgh Area Sees First Significant Snowfall of Season

Residents of western Pennsylvania got their first significant snowfall of the season on Tuesday, November 12, the National Weather Service (NWS) said.

“First appreciable snow accumulation this season,” the NWS Pittsburgh office said on Twitter. “It’s looking a lot like a winter out there.”

The NWS said “light snow” that fell overnight extended into Tuesday and was projected to continue throughout the day.

A winter weather advisory issued on Tuesday said two to five inches of snow could fall in Oil City and Oakland, but most cities in the area were forecast to receive about one or two inches of snow.

The NWS warned residents of “travel difficulties,” citing slippery roads and reduced visibility.
