It snowed for a couple of hours here on 17th May 1955 - according to the archives it actually snowed on three days in that month. Allegedly sleet was observed here on 2nd June 1975 - it certainly snowed (and settled) further north in the country.

The earliest confirmed snowfall I'm aware of for some of the London suburbs was on 6th October 1974 (the year when October was colder than December) though it allegedly snowed on 25th September 1885.

When I lived in northwest Nebraska, we had traces of snow on the first day of summer 1995 and the first day of fall 1995. Only July and August had no snow.

Duluth mn is normally free of snow every year from June to August.

An editor from the National Geographic magazine called and inquired about Jim Brandenburg's story that it had snowed in every month in northern Minnesota.

As it stands right now the latest recorded measurable snow in Minnesota remains at 1.5 inches at Mizpah in Koochiching County on June 4, 1935 and the earliest documented snow in Minnesota is a trace that fell at the Duluth Airport on August 31, 1949.

In recorded history, the only month in which it has not snowed in Minnesota has been July. It has snowed in all other months. There have been, though, several unverified claims that it once snowed in northern Minnesota on July fourth.

In Oregon it has snowed and stuck at least once all 12 months of the year. But that's at over 6500 feet.

At low elevation in Corvallis, we measured 0.3 inches of snow on 4/23/2008 at the official NWS weather station. There was about an inch or an inch and a half on my front walk before it all melted away. As far back as 1889 when Corvallis first opened its weather station that was the latest accumulating snow of record.

It always snows until mid-April to mid-May on average here in Denver. I was here when it snowed last year for the last time on May 11th. The record is June 12, 1947.

We have small leaves in most of the trees now but it snowed this morning where I live in southern Québec near the border with Ontario. Though not unheard of, this is the latest accumulating snow I have seen here in quite a number of years, maybe even a few decades.

It all melted by about 9 or 10 am.

Still have some on the ground here, though a lot is good as it's being rained on.

Think this is the latest I've seen as well. I've seen late season snowfalls that were almost as late, but they were following unusually cool and snowy winters / early springs so little plant growth with no leaf out or flowers.

Similar to the October snowstorm; freakishly high snowfall for so early in the season with a late leaf change and in an unusually warm autumn.
