Snowing up here in Rhode Island. Not where I am but only 5 or 6 miles away an inch on the grass and slush on the roads. Northwest corner of the state a few inches on the ground. This after 74 degrees last Saturday! 1.24 inches of rain so far. Another 1/2 to 3/4 expected. Last 3 rain events up here all around 2 inches or more. no April showers up here!

Morning thoughts...

 

A slowly departing storm was bringing snow and rain to parts of New England. Today will start with partly sunny skies, but clouds could increase during the afternoon. High temperatures will likely reach the middle 50s in most of the region. Likely high temperatures around the region include:

 

New York City (Central Park): 55°

Newark: 56°

Philadelphia: 56°

 

Temperatures will gradually increase during the weekend.

Crazy how a few hundred feet in elevation makes a difference. My daughter works just 4 miles away probably about 200 feet higher elevation and about 4 miles due west from home. She text me a pic at 8:00 AM. All the cars were covered and the ground had a slushy accumulation. The pic is less than a mile from home and about 100 feet higher elevation from home. I leave Walmart go down the hill to home and the snow isn't anywhere near as bad as at Walmart a little less than a mile away. Rain mixed with snow. Go back to Walmart just out of curiosity and crazy hard snowing. Back down the hill home and again rain mixed with snow.
