SPRING SNOWFALL?

Are we done with snow? Not likely. We average 7.0" of snow in spring. We expect March will start very mild with no snow, but it's seldom that we are entirely done with snowfall by March 1.  

No measurable snow in spring has only happened three times in Toledo history: 2010, 1991 and 1946.
