Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but summer is over, the leaves have changed, the Halloween candy has been consumed and it’s time to start thinking about the winter holidays…and SNOW!

According to the National Weather Service, the average date of the first measurable snowfall in Indianapolis is November 19th and the date of the earliest measurable snowfall was October 18th in 1989.

The snowfall averages for the winter months in Indianapolis are:

  • November: 1.3 inches
  • December: 6.4 inches
  • January: 9.3 inches
  • February: 6.1 inches
  • March: 3.1 inches

The most snowfall in a single day in Indianapolis occurred on January 15, 1965 and January 26, 1978, with each producing 10.3 inches of the white stuff!

And without further ado, here are the predictions of the first mesaurable snowfall date in Indianapolis for the 2011-12 winter season.
