Our latest is sometime in May, our earliest was in September.

*Common knowledge, no idea of historical records.

Earliest that stuck and did not melt on contact was Sept 29th with 2.5" recorded
Latest is usually early May.

Snowfall that doesn't stick and stay for a bit, can happen in any month, but thank God usually doesn't happen very often. I have seen snow in the air in June and July personally. I have seen snow in the air and then turn into an inch of small hail in Aug.

Earliest: October 25th, 1957
Earliest Measured: October 26th, 1913 (.8 inches)
Latest Measured: April 12th, 1957 (.7 inches)
Latest: April 30th 1907 and 1949.

I find it funny that 1957 we had our latest (measured) and earliest snow ever. Must've been a chilly summer...

Well, I can't find any stats, but I do remember that we had snow Sept. 25th (?) about 20 years ago. I also remember that we had sleet June 5th about 10 years ago. It's a family member's birthday so I have that date down right. As far as snowfall, I'd guess mid-May would be in the area of our latest snow, but generally it's done by May 1st. Our in the Black Hills which is a half day away from me~we were out there a few years ago and it had snowed in mid June.
