ELLSWORTH — The calendar says it’s spring, but a look outside may seem to contradict that.
Snowfall Tuesday night into Wednesday morning followed a storm Monday and flurries last week.
Those storms brought accumulations ranging from an inch to 7 inches, according to the National Weather Service.
In Hancock County, Monday’s storm dumped snowfall totals ranging from 3 inches in Southwest Harbor to 7 inches in East Surry, according to the National Weather Service website.
Additional totals reported on the National Weather Service website indicate 4 inches fell in Ellsworth and Mariaville and 5 inches in Whiting.
Last week, snow was expected to turn to rain April 3, instead of accumulating totals ranging from 1 inch in Ellsworth to 5 inches in Prospect, according to the National Weather Service. A total of 2.4 inches was observed in Surry, 3 inches at the Bangor International Airport and 3.9 inches in Winterport.
Rich Norton, a forecaster with the National Weather Service in Caribou, said 5.7 inches of snow have been recorded so far this month in Bangor. This is quite a bit higher than the 30-year monthly average of 1.8 inches.
Still, he said snowstorms are “not all that unusual” in Maine in early April.
