Monday will still be on the cool side but daily highs will rebound to the mid 60s later next week.
The April Fool's Day Blizzard was a major winter storm in the Northeastern United States
on March 31 and April 1, 1997. The storm dumped rain, sleet, and snow from Maryland to
Maine leaving hundreds of thousands without power and as much as three feet of snow
on the ground.
Due to the date many people took warnings of the storm less than seriously. Plows had
already begun to be put away for the summer and hardware stores had to sell shovels
again even though they already had out patio furniture. One commuter called it
"Mother Nature's April Fools' Joke."
