April takes the crown

April 23, 2013

  April snows melt quickly. We have that going for us, which is nice! The 3.8” of snow that fell at MSP airport late Monday brought our April snow total to 17.9”. That tops the 15.1” recorded in February, making this the snowiest month of our Twin Cities 2012-2013 snow season.  

  It’s rare for April to be the snowiest month of winter in the Twin Cities…it hasn’t happened since the winter of 2001-2002. Over the past 30 winters, from the winter of 1983-84 to this winter, our snowiest month has been:

December… 8 times

January… 7 times

March… 5 times

November… 5 times

February… 3 times

April… 2 times

  This is now the third snowiest April in Twin Cities history, based on weather records going back to 1885. Our snowiest April was in 1983, with 21.8”, followed by April of 2002, with 20.2”. If you need more snow stats, you can see an extensive listing of monthly Twin Cities snowfall totals at MSPsnow.

   I’ll leave you with some pics taken this morning in Minnetonka:
