(WHSV) - April is starting on a cold and wintry note for some with snow in the northeast and the Deep South under freeze warnings.

Vermont was one area that saw some snow Thursday but according to most residents this commonly happens but are not happy about it. Below is a photo from today south of Burlington, Vermont.

Lake effect snow also impacted the Cleveland area as numerous accidents were reported. Lake effect snow bands rapidly changed visibility and road conditions.

Opening Day for major league baseball was on Thursday and in Detroit, the snowflakes were flying as the Detroit Tigers took on the Cleveland Indians. The first home run of the 2021 season came when snow was coming down!

Freeze watches (light blue) and warnings (purple) stretch all across the Deep South and Ohio Valley.
