Before the sun turned it all back into water, wind-whipped snow landed on Boston early Sunday morning.

The April anomaly left about an inch or so of dense snow on the city, downing trees and causing some isolated power outages in the process.

The National Weather Service logged one inch of snow at Logan Airport and 2.4 inches in Jamaica Plain around 11 a.m. Snow totals were higher elsewhere in the region, with snowfall as high as 6 or 7 inches west of the city, according to NWS data.

Riders on the Green Line’s D branch between Kenmore and Newton Highlands were shuttled on buses after a tree toppled over at Chestnut Hill on the Green Line’s D branch, according to the MBTA.

The T reported the blown-over tree in a tweet around 7:30 a.m., adding a picture of it hanging suspended on the track’s overhead electrified wires.

The T just before noon was still reporting “moderate residual delays” on the D Line, then announced at 12:04 that regular service had resumed.

A photo also circulated of another horizontal tree, which careened onto W. Canton Street in the South End. It damaged some vehicles, according to the image posted on Twitter and UniversalHub, it fell between two parked cars.

There were 314 customer outages reported in the Boston service area for Eversource, according to a map on the power company’s website.

The springtime snowfall may not be over yet, according to William Babcock, meteorologist with the National Weather Service. He said snow flurries could pop up around Southern New England throughout the day on Sunday.

Babcock also warned of the possibility that a storm blowing in from the Great Lakes could strike early Monday, impacting the morning commute.
