The calendar reads this date, but Mother Nature apparently doesn't use one and instead is playing tricks in the form of more winter weather. According to the National Weather Service (NWS) latest update, a winter storm warning remains in effect here in New Hampshire for the next 7 hours until 4 p.m. this afternoon.
"Snow will be heavy at times, especially this morning. The snow will likely mix with rain in many areas this afternoon. The heavy, wet snow will stick to trees limbs and may lead to power outages as the weight of snow takes down branches."
The wintry weather started yesterday morning around 10 a.m. here in Nashua, NH. Roadways in and around the area were wet but without any significant accumulation.
The view above is from our apt window earlier this morning. It seemed that the snow has stopped (briefly) and by the sound against the windows it was sleeting.
However, within the past 30 minutes, the snowflakes have resumed. The NWS site cautions that the Storm Warning will remain in effect until late afternoon: "Hazard types: Heavy snow, mixing with sleet and then rain, Snow accumulation of 10 to 14 inches, Northeast 10 to 15 mph winds with gusts up to 25 mph, temperatures in the lower 30s, and visibilities one quarter mile or less at times."
No Fooling indeed . . spring is delayed here this year, maybe by mid-April ?
