Where We Stand with Winter 2012-13 Snowfall Compared to Normal (As of March 28)March 28th, 2013 at 4:11 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
Snowfall for 2012-13 winter-spring is largely normal to above-normal after the recent snowfall.
It has been adding up since that big pre-Christmas snow & all the little snows in-between with the two biggest snows of the season occurring in March. The March 25 one was the heaviest post March 18 snowfall since March 20, 1875.
Over the past four years, there have been two once-in-a-lifetime weather events around here: the incredible March heat wave & the incredibly late season +8″ snowfall. Arguably, you could consider last summer’s drought a once-in-a-lifetime event, but it didn’t quite qualify. Such summer droughts tend to occur about every 30 years in central & northern Indiana.
