I think we've had maybe 5 days over the last 200 years also....but they don't even reach the ground, just snow flurries flying around.

Same here with 5 days over 200 years...
We had flurries once about 10 years ago when I lived in N Phoenix. The far northern and eastern areas of the valley like Carefree and far N. Scottsdale will get snow maybe once every year or so. Usually the storms coming from the N. will have thunderstorms that will artificially lower the snow levels. So even though it is not below freezing it will snow. The elevation is higher in those areas though, about 1000 to 1500 feet higher than downtown Phoenix which is a few hundred feet higher than where I live now in the far west valley. I remember the time it flurried in 1998 temps were in the high 40's at my house. Which is weird - I remember when I lived in MA and it there were times it would be below freezing...... and pouring rain.
In Boston I remember snow in the 3rd week of October and the 2nd week in May. (Soooo glad I don't live THERE anymore!)

In my 18 years in Melbourne, I've never actually seen snow flurries at my place. The cloest thing we got to snow was ice pellets on AUg 10, 2005, it was late afternoon and I remember a spectacular gustfront rolling right over us, then small bits of ice started pelting down, it wasn't hail, but more like rain that was "semi-frozen"...imagine a cross between rain and snow..that's the best I could describe it. Some of the beaches south of Melbourne got snow as have the higher elevation suburbs (the downtown itself missed out).

All sources seem to mention only 3 definitive occasions of snow in the Melbourne metropolitan area over the last 200 years, with those being 1951, 1986 and 2005.

We came close this year, with the temp at midday last weekend being 5C but it just wasn't cold enough to spawn snowfalls anywhere in the city. The snow got down to 200m, but all of Melbourne is generally below about 150m elevation. However, some towns in the Dandenong ranges (~600m), which are only half an hour drive from my place got a decent cover of snow.

Measurable snowfall in Salt Lake City:

Earliest: September 17 (1965; 2.2")
Latest: May 18 (1977; 0.5" and 1960; 1.0")

Records for a trace of snowfall:

Earliest: September 16 (in 1946)
Latest: May 28 (in 1982)

The earliest that I can remember snow was on September 29, just last year. First September snow in 30 years. The latest I can remember was a brief rain/snow mix on May 28, 2006 (although it didn't register at the airport). The latest I can remember full snow (not a mix) was sometime around May 11 or 12, too long ago to remember the exact year.

As long as I've lived here before last year I never remember seeing snow before the last week of October except for one year when we got maybe an inch on October 15. Our earliest snow usually comes anywhere from late October to mid-November. We get snow in early May about once every 2-3 years or so. Our last snow this year was on May 1. I remember getting 5 inches of snow on May 5 back in 2002. Quite an exciting day might I say. Our latest snow can fall anywhere from early April to early May.

Just google the town name and annual rain or snowfall, you'll come up with lots of sites including this one.
