Burlington, VT, Apr 24, 2012 — A spring nor'easter covered much of the state with a snowy and slushy mix Sunday night and Monday morning. About 5,000 utility customers remain without power in parts of central and western New York this morning.
The National Weather Service says the storm dropped 10 inches of snow on Newfield, near Ithaca, and 9 inches on Colden, south of Buffalo. Most of the North Country saw between 2 and 4 inches.
A late-spring snow isn't that unusual. But it was definitely a contrast to the rest of the unseasonably warm and dry spring. Nora Flaherty put in a call yesterday to National Weather Service meteorologist Brooke Taber to find out what happened and what else we can expect this week.
