Temperatures this morning in the Clifton area have fallen into the 20s with wind chills in the teens. The 28 degree temperature at 6am in Clifton is a record low for April 16th.
Hard to believe that after having an 80 degree reading on Monday that we would have accumulating snow Tuesday night. I received 1/2 inch of the white stuff with a couple of inches reported across inland sections.
