First Snowfall For The East Coast Falls In Central Pennsylvania

10.03.11 | Sarah Harnisch

  Phillipsburg, Pennsylvania was the first town on the east coast this weekend to have measurable snow. It wasn't much, 1 inch, but photographs show it did stick to the ground. The earliest snowfall ever recorded in that part of the state was October 2nd 2003. If Sunday's snow is recorded by the National Weather Service as a "trace"-- meaning the snow actually stuck to the ground-- then October 2nd, 2011 would tie the record. The Appalachin Mountains in New York had some snow as well. For all you snow lovers, winter is still officially 11 weeks 2 days away, but the snow is sneaking in sooner then that.
