Freak cold temperatures in the North East see snow in New Hampshire

The Memorial Day weekend is supposed to signal the start of summer but some Americans were waking up to snow this morning.

Snow showers were forecast for the higher elevations of Vermont, Upstate New York, New Hampshire and northwest Maine early today, and confused residents took to Twitter to bemoan the wintry weather.

By this afternoon, snowflakes should be confined to the higher summits of northern New England but the chilly weather will linger all day as cloud cover and rain keeps highs in the 40s and 50s from New England to northeastern New York.
