The simple answer to the question is “probably not”. We average 1.8″ of snow in the month of April, and over the last 5 years, we had measurable snow April in each of those 5 years. Last year, Grand Rapids had 4.1″ of snow on April 14th, 0.1″ of snow on the 15th and trace amounts of snow on the 27th and 29th.

Wow, look at this! The models are prediction a substantial push of cold air into much of the Northern U.S. for the period April 12-18. Many models are also forecasting that we’ll get at least a little light snow here in West Michigan. Snow doesn’t last long in mid-April, but this map suggests that we’ll have a chance of at least a little snow during mid-April.
