Hello, spring! Goodbye, snow?

Spring showers, sure, but sometimes that comes in the form of snow!

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Spring is finally here, but winter-like weather is not over yet.

While we are officially turning the chapter to spring, mother nature often reminds us of winter a couple of times during the spring season.

We crunched the numbers and the average last one inch of snowfall is March 26 for Muskegon and March 29 for Grand Rapids. The average last tenth of an inch of snow is April 2 for Muskegon and April 11 for Grand Rapids. Although, we have seen snowfall as late as May 18 in Grand Rapids back in 1915!


The latest one inch of snowfall that Grand Rapids has gotten was on May 10 back in 1902. That day in history we saw a record-breaking 5.5 inches! For the last two years, we have not seen snow in the month of May. In fact, we had our last trace of snowfall was on the same day in 2022 and 2021, April 26.

It's safe to say that we are not yet done with at least an inch of snowfall. We will likely exceed an inch of snow by the end of this week! So, while many may be excited about spring, we should still be prepared for a little bit of snow.
