Record Cold Summer Leads To Changing Leaves In August

Pittsburgh is dealing with one of the coldest summers in history, and it’s having an effect on the trees. Friday morning temperatures fell into the 40s in Western Pennsylvania. Meteorologists say these cold temperatures are leading to trees changing colors in the middle of August. “This is extraordinary for August, and certainly is a reflection of the prevalence of cool weather,” KDKA Meteorologist Dennis Bowman said.

A KDKA weather viewer took these pictures of the leaves already starting to change colors on the South Side of town, and other residents have noticed the same thing happening on the North Shore.
