March is usually when Sioux Falls receives its heaviest snow as we head out of winter an into spring. Recently, it's been winter's cold grip in December that brings December to the forefront when it comes to snow.
Even though the climate average snow in March is barely above December by two-tenths of an inch, recent Decembers have been much snowier than March. Since 2000, December has given Sioux Falls just over ten inches of snow. March since that time is at six point three. The snowiest month during that stretch was 27.8 inches in December 2009, while the snowiest March since 2000 was 17.9 in 2000.
So far, Sioux Falls is at eight point eight inches this December. With more than two weeks left in the month, expect us to add on to that number.
