Snow and rain cause bank holiday delays

Southeast wind 8 to 11 miles per hour.

The snow had started coming down on the city shortly before dawn on Monday, Xinhua new agency reported.

Normal highs of 65 degrees are expected during April's second half, National Weather Service forecasts show.

"Some clear skies as we go through the night".

Easter Monday sporting fixtures were hit by cancellations, as waterlogged pitches caused the postponement of Nottingham Forest's Championship clash against Barnsley, along with several lower-league matches. Hang in there, as spring hasn't fully sprung just yet.

It's not an April Fool's joke - some MA commuters are dealing with some wintry weather Monday morning.

Snow much for spring break.

Snow will mostly fall between 7 a.m. and noon before turning into rain. Rain is likely most of the day on Tuesday and into Wednesday morning as the wind picks up throughout the day.

While a winter weather advisory remains in effect until 1 p.m. today, April 2, the precipitation is expected to end by 10 a.m.

Still, don't think April hasn't seen its share of snow, to which Long Islanders who were around in 1982 can attest. If only this were the last snow of the season, but that may not be the case either.

The Met Office forecast for the rest of the week for the Portsmouth area is for slightly milder weather, which will be dry but cloudy with some sunny spells.

A wintry mix begins early Tuesday morning. The storm was a very progressive system, which means it moves fast, rocketing through the city, dubbing enough snow to create for a nuisance through the morning commute. That combined with a little bit of sunshine should make for a quick melt and cleanup.

WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said that many smartphone weather apps are displaying the snowflake symbol for the weekend as multiple models predict the chance for another round of cold weather.

Snow will become less widespread and more showery this afternoon and will diminish altogether by tonight leaving behind clearing and drying conditions Tuesday and Wednesday.

Once we get into afternoon, there will likely be a big spread in temperatures from north to south. Highs near M-55 will be stuck in the 30s, with the TriCities, Thumb and Mt. Expect a high of 55 and a low around 48. That year 16 inches fell at the airport, all on April 6, according to Samantha Borisoff, climatologist with the regional center.

The air will be colder than usual, too.

The high Tuesday should be near 36, sandwiched by lows around 32 and 20.

That may linger into the early part of Saturday with another chance for precipitation Sunday.
