Spring storm dumps snow in northern MI, blamed in 3 deaths

Spring storm dumps snow in northern MI, blamed in 3 deaths

It is not unusual weather for April, with the month seeing an average of 2.3 snow days each year.

The National Weather Service forecasts indicate MA will likely see precipitation on Friday. Near and south of highway 10, 5 to 8 inches are possible with localized higher amounts. An inch or so accumulation possible.

Dozens of schools canceled classes today as the snow began to accumulate, including the Wausau, Rhinelander, Stevens Point, Crandon and Marshfield districts.

The worst of the winter weather for Cumbria might not be over.

Lexington last saw April snow come its away in 2014, when 0.3 inches fell on April 15.

However, the snow did arrive and is expected to fall lightly throughout the day mostly along the M-59 corridor and ending in the early afternoon.




The impending snow follows a snowy March.

Friday night: A slight chance of snow after 1 a.m.

Traditional spring temperatures likely won't appear next week either. And while today's low temperature is expected to fall to 12 degrees, that's twice the low of 6 degrees from 1995.

There should be some improvement Wednesday - mostly sunny skies and a high in the mid-40s. Highs Friday will be in the 30s and then dip into the 20s that night, according to the National Weather Service. Behind this system it will turn blustery and cold for Thursday's Red Sox home opener.

Wednesday won't be almost as warm, as the high will only reach the low 40s and the low will dip into the mid 20s. High near 64. Southeast wind 6 to 15 miles per hour becoming south in the afternoon. "If it ends up being 30 to 50 miles to the south, it's going to have a huge impact on our weather for Saturday".
