NATIONAL SUMMARY                   
 
A period of rain early on Saturday morning across southeastern New
England changed over to snow during the late morning and continued
into the evening hours. A zone of heavier snow oriented across eastern
Long Island. A general 1 to 3 inches of snow fell across southern New 
England. A couple snow showers fell across the rest of the Northeast, 
the Appalachians and the mid-Atlantic.
 
Across the Southeast, a mainly dry and cool day was observed. A few 
rain and snow showers moved across Mississippi and Alabama during the 
afternoon before dissipating during the evening hours.
With high pressure in control, dry conditions and sunshine were 
observed across the Midwest. A storm system brought rain to the 
northern Plains during the evening hours. This storm system will 
spread warmer air into the region on Sunday.
 
Across the southern Plains, a couple showers moved across eastern 
Kansas and Arkansas early in the day. Texas remained warm with many 
locations seeing high temperatures 10 to 15 F above average for this

SPECIAL WEATHER                    
 
Niagara Falls "Dries Up"           
 
In 1848, Niagara Falls ran dry for about 24 hours. The river was 
reduced to a trickle, as a massive ice jam formed on this date near 
Buffalo. Strong winds has blown ice from Lake Erie into the river 
entrance and completely blocked it. It was only when the ice shifted 
the following day that the water resumed its flow. Residents were so 
used to the sound of water flowing that some of them awoke during the 
night due to the unusual silence.
