Tri-State Upgraded to Enhanced Risk for Severe Weather Tuesday
Mother Nature just can't seem to decide what season she wants it to be in the Tri-State. While it's officially been Spring for roughly two weeks, (by the calendar's standard anyway) we've seen more chilly temperatures, and even snow, then we have Spring weather.
