Snow Is Still An Issue

March 27, 2014, 5:11 PM by Grant Smith

Snow Is Still An Issue

We are a week into spring but as we saw Thursday morning, snow is still an issue and going back over 110 years, snow has been an issue for the month of April.

The climate average for snowfall for Sioux Falls is a little over 4 and half inches for the month of April. And going back to 1892, most of the time, the total monthly amounts are less than ten inches. But there were a few years that saw over ten inches of snow. And in 1983, Sioux Falls saw over 18 inches of snow in the month of April and some areas of KELOLAND saw even more.

The good news is the average days with snow on the ground are between one and two days. What that means is, on average, the snow doesn't last that long before it melts. And we've already seen this happening as in the last week; snow falls in the morning and is gone by the afternoon.

The forecast shows this weekend will be back in the 50s and 60s but early next week; another winter storm looks to be passing through.
