A late snow buried Alaska – nine inches overnight in Anchorage – as parts of the East Coast prepared for what could be a white weekend. It might be spring, but weather forecasters say otherwise.

Places in New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, New York and Massachusetts were expected to see snow in bothersome amounts later this week and over the weekend, said Weather Nation.

According to the forecast, those areas could see a wintery mix of snow, ice and rain starting on Friday, and by early Saturday that mix could turn into some heavy snow and ice.

This all comes just a few weeks after portions of New York and New England got up to four feet of snow.

The nine inches of snow that fell in Anchorage between late Tuesday and early Wednesday was the highest amount of snowfall on a March 29, noted The Associated Press. In 2001, 3.4 inches came that late.

Residents weren’t shocked. Snow has fallen in Anchorage as late as mid-April.
