The temp has been slowly falling here.

Now down to 37F and wet flakes are mixing in with the rain.

April!:thumbsdown:

Terrible morning here. Rain all morning, except when it turned to snow. Afternoon was better, but still a couple passing showers. One with either hail or graupel bouncing.

Yeah, probably a slushy coating. BGM map has nothing for pretty much anybody below 1,000 feet.

I commend you for wishing for an April snowstorm. You're a true snow junkie!

Lol. Indeed! I actually lived in the snowbelt of Ontario, Canada for two winters. The people there were dumbfounded when, after a brutal winter, I was still happily shoveling snow during a snowstorm at the end of April. Hah!

Is April really a spring month here?  You could make a case for it being a winter month. Mild temps are generally in advance of a cold front and last a couple days or less, base weather is cloudy/damp/cool to cold/occasional snow showers.  So Jan through April = winter; May and June = spring; July through Sept = summer; Oct = fall; Nov and Dec = winter. That’s 6 months of winter.

I disagree. In my opinion, it has become more like this:

November through April = November

May = Spring

June through first half of October = Summer

2nd half of October = Fall :(

That seems accurate. I don't have much perspective of this climate yet. I'm used to this seasonal schedule:

Late Dec - Late Feb: winter*

Late Feb/early Mar to mid May: spring

Mid May - early Oct: summer

Early Oct - Late Dec: fall*

 

*Note: restrictions may apply. While rare, some side effects could include tornado outbreaks and temperatures in the 80s. If you're a snow lover, consult with your doctor first.

There were a few snow showers here a couple of hours ago. It’s already transitioned to rain. LEK, what’s your elevation in Cazenovia?

 

Really? No rain here. Occasional heavy snow showers and then it brightens up a bit.

I always get asked, “You must love to ski”, which I now answer, “I do but it has nothing to do with it. I just love snow”

I’ve been thinking we’ve had a long stretch of weekends with mostly bad weather. So I checked…Every weekend since December 1st has had at least one day with precip. Doesn’t mean every weekend has been a washout or snowy but not a single Sat/Sun with no precip since 12/1. Didn’t look back farther than that…It’s our climo I guess.

I finally agree with you. It’s generally too late for anything interesting and I’m tired of mud. That being said, it would be lovely to get some 60’s instead of the traditional slam into 88 and humid. 

Traitor.
