WEST­SIDE — Light snow fell across the re­gion on Mon­day morn­ing as a light band of pre­cip­i­ta­tion passed through the area and tem­per­a­tures fell. What started out as light rain changed over to light snow and one to two inches of the wet snow on top of leaves and grass.

Since the ground and streets re­mained warmer and tem­per­a­tures hov­ered just above the freez­ing mark on Mon­day, the snowy blan­ket didn’t last long.

The snow was the first for the sea­son, with the first hard frost com­ing over the week­end on Satur­day morn­ing.

Cold tem­per­a­tures were fore­cast by the Na­tional Weather Ser­vice yet on Tues­day — with highs near the freez­ing mark. Slightly warmer tem­per­a­tures were fore­cast for to­day, with mostly sunny skies and warmer tem­per­a­tures (highs in the 40s) fore­cast the re­main­der of the week.
