A surprise snowstorm over the weekend followed warm temperatures last week, covering spring flowers--like these Sullivan County maple buds--with April snow showers.
Forecasts call for three to eight additional inches of snow to fall across the Catskills on Monday, April 4, according to the Albany office of the National Weather Service. A winter weather advisory remains in effect throughout the day until 6 p.m., and schools are closed across the region.
