Last Snowfall Frequency

Posted: 07 Apr 2014 05:36 AM

We are finishing our first week of April and the near term forecast holds hope that we won't see any snowfall. Climatology of the last measurable snowfall of the winter/spring season is presented in the featured chart. For today, we are at about 50% frequency. This means that half of the years experienced a measurable snowfall after today's date. A simple assumption would place Des Moines odds at 50/50 of seeing another snowfall this spring. You probably recall picking up snowfall in early May last year! We really do not wish to repeat that this year.

Good = 24
Bad = 5
Abstain = 4
