Say It Isn't Snow: April Showers Fool Spring
Snow expected to continue until early afternoon Monday.
If April showers bring May flowers, what does an April snowstorm do?
In Rochester, it delays the city's major road project and forces kids to pack snow pants for recess.
It also makes for some interesting early-morning tweets on Twitter: the hashtags #IHateMichigan and #WhoNeedsSpring were among the most popular this morning for those who wanted to complain about the snow.
A winter weather advisory remained in effect until 1 p.m. As of 8:30 a.m., about an inch and a half of snow had accumulated in Rochester Hills; the roads remained mostly clear, though, as the temperature hovered around 32 degrees.
According to the National Weather Service, 2-4 inches of snow is predicted. More snow — along with a possibility of freezing rain — is expected after 2 a.m. Tuesday.
Although power outages were reported across Oakland County on Sunday night, as of Monday morning, there were no reported outages for DTE customers in Rochester and Rochester Hills.
