Snow covered grass and trees on April 1 is a great way to start the new month.

Just thought I'd put this here, 06z GFS and the 00z EURO both show an all out blizzard around April 5th-6th. 18-24 inches area wide and strong winds. Would be insane if it happened! Looks like rain to very heavy long duration snow. Rest of the runs look plenty cold too.

Good job Snow you got me too, but what a letdown. That map is how I hope every season ends. Looks like yesterdays 1.2 inches may be how  this season ends.

I can't complain I give this year a solid B in the HV.

Good one Snow and basically the party is over. Looks like some warmth next week on Tues and Wed.

31.8* this morning on April 1 with many black ice patches. They had to salt the raods in spots and at my school. Buildings and grounds guys are done with this winter. It was a good one if not great winter.

Okay lets grade this winter - I will start a thread or do we have one??? And who won the annual NJSWF winter contest??

I hear Schmalzi had it before we began under a false name here (old Channel 7 board troll!!)

Sorry guys, I saw that joke idea on another board and I couldn't resist.

I'd give this winter a B, would have been an A if Juno and many other storms didn't miss us up here in the HV. It's a B because of the snowpack that we kept slowly adding on to storm after storm (highest was almost 2 feet!) Also, the cold was impressive and the snow into spring was as well.

I've been on spring break since Friday and I've seen snow fall atleast 3 times, measurable twice. Never thought I would see that.

By the way, landscaping company for my apartment complex puts salt buckets in every building just before winter starts, and they are driving around collecting them right now. Kind of depressing.

low to mid 60's from NYC on west over the next 2 days. Only in the 50's and 40's everywhere else. Impressive thermal gradient. Ocean temps are frigid

Watch out for possible brush fires this afternoon/evening. Be careful if doing any outdoor burning or discarding of smoking materials.
