April Snow

The recent snow in Fargo amounted to 1.8 inches over the course of three days.  Snow in April is very common and most locations average between 2 to 5 inches during this month.  In other words, the snow wasn’t uncommon for us this time of year.  What may have seen a bit odd was that fact it hasn’t snow of any consequence in quite some time.  To use Fargo as an example, the last time we had two inches of snow from single event was back on March 10 and before that it was on February 23.  You may have forgotten that the biggest snow storm of the winter season, was actually back on October 20 when a bit over 4 inches feel, so small snow events have been the norm this year.
