December through February, anything outside of this is rare, insignificant, & probably occurred in March.

Last year we had snow in late October, it wasn't even an inch but it was still a super odd event, we weren't even below freezing. We had to wait all the way until January for the next sight of snow.

Central Park recorded 2.9 inches in October.

There's been notable storms in April, but of course they're a rare exception. There was nearly 10 inches in April 1982.

Snow is possible from September to May, but on average, from November to April.

Yes. There have been several occasions when traces of snow have been measured in Detroit.

I looked at Detroit's NWS page and I don't see any historical data for September snowfall.

Oops, you're right. No snow has been OFFICIALLY recorded in September. I was looking at April's data. I know snow has been recorded at the beginning of October however.

Chicago first snow in December last snow...?

It can flury in November but usually nothing to worry about. Last snow is usually early April, but depends on the year. Some years things warm up sooner than others i.e. last snow can be in March or even Feb. However I hear it once snowed in June...

Latest snow date for Chicago I could find is May 26th. But apparently some flakes were flying on June 2, 1910. No official record from the NWS service though.
