Early risers this morning were met with weather conditions more like those of late November than in late March.
The ground was snow covered and temperatures were in the 20s in most parts of the region. At Seven Springs Mountain Resort on the border of Somerset and Fayette counties, 3 inches of snow fell overnight, the resort reported Sunday morning.
It won't get much better later in the day, the National Weather Service reported. A chance of snow showers is in the forecast through the afternoon, although temperatures could rise into the lower 40s. In that case, the precipitation will turn to rain.
On Monday, when the Pittsburgh Pirates take on the Chicago Cubs in the baseball season opener, temperatures won't be as high as originally expected.
Highs in the 60s were predicted in forecasts last week, but the weather service now is calling for highs in the 50s under mostly sunny skies.
Back to that overnight snow, here are some accumulation totals from other locales: The Wexford area of Pine, 1 inch; Clarion in Clarion County, 2.5 inches; Beaver Falls, 1 inch; Moon, 0.8 of an inch; and Terra Alta in Preston County, W.Va., 4 inches.
