At this point, March Madness doesn't only apply to basketball. It can be said of the weather, too.
Spring may have officially began last night around 7:20 p.m., but Portsmouth's first full day of spring has had its share of freaky weather conditions. The snow began falling around 10:30 a.m. this morning and is still going strong as of 1 p.m. Rain replaced the flakes around 3 p.m., according to the National Weather Service.
Sure, snow in the spring isn't unheard of in Rhode Island, but did it really have to come on the first full day of spring? Those sunny past few days were such a tease.
And if that weren't enough, snow is also predicted for next Thursday.
