The snowfall came after a relatively warm weekend when temperatures reached the 60s on Saturday. Severe storms hit later that day, with gusts reaching at least 60 mph, knocking out power to tens of thousands of people.
Skies clear Monday night and with plenty of sun Tuesday, almost all of the snow will be history.
Highs Tuesday through Thursday will be in the low 40s, very close to normal.
