A Tale of Two Winters

While March and April can still produce winter weather conditions, the higher sun angle and longer days of the weeks ahead generally work against the development of extreme winter-like conditions. With that in mind, the image below summarizes this most recent winter and compares it to the extremes the area experienced the previous year.

The record books for March show that the daily record snowfalls in March are 12 inches or less, with on big exception. On March 28-29, 1942, a storm produced 22 inches of snow, the sixth biggest snow storm on record for Baltimore. 21.9 inches of that snow fell on the 29th.

April daily record snowfalls for Baltimore, with one exception, are less than 5 inches. That exception was a 9.4 inch snowfall on April 1, 1924.
