Just state police barracks. Only 11k live here 

Heath MA has 900 people and has a police department.

Seems like a waste of taxpayers money 

It's obviously worked for Tolland for a while.  I mean if you have a State barracks in the town, that pretty much covers it.  Troopers always going to and from the barracks is enough to keep enforcement up in a small town.

Instead of 3 of you guys joking or giving 1 word responses, can you give a detailed Reasoning begins it?  Especially the radar?  As it’s obviously true that there was snow there.  But the R/S Line was 100 miles North oh it.....

These squalls have been going pretty much consistently for like 8 hours now. 

Pretty impressive to have this steady stream of snow showers and squalls under the cold pool for so many hours on end.

Sun then snow then sun then graupel then sun then snow, etc.

Wow that’s awesome. It’s not even up by CAR and it’s mostly under 500 feet. 

For those wondering where Lee Maine is

Can someone PLEASE explain this Snow situation?  My friend from the Hamptons just called up and said “It’s like 45 and it’s SHOWING!?”  I look at the Radar, and the Rain / Snow Line is clearly NW Worcester.....  

 

EXCERPT, this Circular Section over the Hamptons that is a Blue Ball of Snow.  
 

WHAT IN THE HELL?  But also, the “Snow” that’s stuck looked Much more like Hail, But Hail Only Congress in Thunderstorms?  But it’s sleety?  It snowed in True Flake Form after she took that picture as well
 

I’m both confused by what the “Snow” actually is, and What is this Bay of cold air and hope How it happen?  But again, sue said it was clearly warm when in the 40’s.

Crazy that a couple spots like 40 minutes from ALB woke up to 8-12" too.  I'd expect it more up that way in maritime bomb cyclone land.  Just an awesome day weather wise all around.

Another band about to roll through CT.

I'm right on the sound in Branford. 36 and a nice squall just rolled through and coated everything. Impressive for this time of year.

Squalls up here this time of year, pretty cool and impressive.  

But squalls like your photo, in the time of max diurnal temperatures, along the Long Island Sound is absolutely bonkers for this time of year.

Guess that’s what happens when 850mb and 500mb are near the minimum climo values on the NAEFS ensemble.

It’s really just the annual May cold snap.

This feels like late November or early December with this airmass and popcorn squalls under a ULL. Yet we’re 6 weeks from the solstice.
