Snow already?

Better believe it! Parts of Pennsylvania had snow of up to one inch early Sunday morning. This video taken just minutes away from AccuWeather's global headquarters in State College, Pa., captures the weather just after 7:00 a.m. EDT.

The earliest snowfall ever recorded in State College happened Oct. 2, 2003. If Sunday's snow becomes officially considered a trace, meaning snow actually stuck to the ground, then Oct. 2, 2011 might tie that record.

AccuWeather meteorologists and AccuFans also reported snow in Johnstown, Pa., Loretto, Pa., and downtown Philipsburg, Pa.

Maryland, southern New York, West Virginia, and Northeast areas with higher elevations also had snow on Saturday or Sunday morning.
