This was the seventh-driest winter in 50 years

Winter 2014/2015 will go down as one of the most anemic winter seasons in Twin Cities weather history.

So far this season, through March, we have only seen 32" of the white stuff accumulate in the metro. That puts us at 41% below average, and with almost half our snow missing, it has turned out to be another drought stricken spring across Minnesota.

AVERAGE SNOW SEASON


SNOW SO FAR FAR 2014/2015

One way to put things into perspective is to look at our 3 biggest snowstorms so far this season. We hardly had to break out the shovels as the most we have seen so far in one storm is 4.2" back in December.

March is our 3rd snowiest month but April has more rain than snow and offers little hope for snow lovers to get back to normal. However, with that said, it can still snow. In fact, below is a graph of those chances and a list of the top 10 April wallops since records began 130 years ago.

We have seen flakes fall as late as May 28th. 

Although the odds are slim, we could still have a normal snow season, as long as get another 22 inches in the next 2 months. That's only a half and inch a day through May 20th. No sarcasm here.
