spring032111.jpgYou may have awaken this morning and looked at your calendar realizing that today is the first day of spring. And you would be correct because with the vernal equinox last evening at 7:21 PM, spring did officially arrive. But then you may have looked out your window and become rather confused. Yes, that is snow falling out your window, it is not an evil joke.

A quick moving storm system will drop a few inches of snow on the region this morning, with up to 8 inches possible in some of the highest elevations above 1500 feet, especially in the Adirondacks. Here around Albany, expect just an inch or two before some rain starts to mix in later this afternoon.

The messenger says that another winter storm will impact the region on Wednesday and into early Thursday with moderate snow accumulations a good possibility. It looks to then remain rather cold and chilly right into our weekend. Sorry for the bad news, but blame the groundhog!
