Currently at 10:03 am on april 1st in the east end of Ottawa in the Orleans area, it is snowing lightly but steadily. The ground is wet as the snow is melting but it is all snow despite EC reporting only straight light rain from their monitoring station out by the airport. And their forecast only calls for rain in Ottawa today. Anybody else in the Ottawa area reproting snow?

Wet snow came down steady for a little while; melted on contact with the surface but was good fun nonetheless! smile.gif

Haven't seen legitimate snow here since March 9th. It's so strange to think that last year, we had 5 cm of snow on April 18th.

Wet snow here this morning and that's no April fools joke!! mad.gif Nice big flakes, Oh April, why do you do this to us every year... rolleyes.gif


I posted the above in the spring 2012 thread about the same time Ottsnowstorms.

Hopefully that is the last snow for the season, but you never know, we've had pretty big snowfalls in April before...

Yeah, hopefully that is it. I enjoyed that heat a couple of weeks ago too much to want snow any more. Bring on the heat!
