I'm not sure, but according to the NOWdata on the NWS site, we got six inches of snow on April 23, 1986. I don't know if that's the latest date or if there was a trace or something on a later date in April.

I didn't see it but apparently the latest measurable snow was on May 18, 1935, with a few centimeters (couple inches). Dunno for snow falling, maybe early June.

In Detroit, the latest for measurable snowfall was Mother's day.

That said, the general rule is that winter's over after tax day.

The last couple of years, it's been ending after February.

I think Vancouver's recorded accumulating snow in April but it's very rare and I don't know the exact latest date.

The earliest that I remember was April 9, 2003. It wasn't much snow, but there were flakes flying around and I was wondering if it was really April or not! There was definitely snow later than that, but I either wasn't born yet or too young to remember it.

May for settling snow.

Possibly June for falling snow.

I'm surprised New Jersey hasn't seen later snowfall than April, because April snowfall isn't uncommon here.

Not where I live, but once on an overnight trip to Bozeman, MT I saw 2 inches of snow stick in early June. I've also seen snow in May in Spokane, but that didn't stick and was really just a trace.

Where I live probably April, but it's 50 miles northeast and 10,000 feet up. I can still see it though. Sometimes.

Looks like May 20th here. That's the latest date with a value for normal snowfall amount, at any rate.
