PITTSBURGH (AP) — Cold temperature records have been snapped in two of Pennsylvania’s biggest cities as a bitter cold snap continues to batter the state.
The National Weather Service says the temperature at Pittsburgh International Airport dropped to 12 degrees just before 7 a.m. Wednesday. That topped a record for Nov. 13 that had been set in 1911.
Meanwhile, the temperature dipped to 23 degrees at Philadelphia International Airport early Wednesday, breaking a record for the date set in 1996.
Forecasters say the bitter cold won’t last much longer, as high temperatures on Thursday are expected to be in the 40s in most areas and could reach the low 50s on Friday.
