From Toledo to Cincinnati to Cleveland. “Most of the records were from 1901,” says meteorologist.


“Cincinnati joined Toledo with this distinction on April 21,” says meteorologist Erin Carroll. “Cincinnati picked up 2.7 inches of snow, which is almost the most and latest snowfall on record.”

“A two-inch snow event in Cleveland on or after April 21 has only happened three times: May 6, 1974 (2.0″), April 23-25, 2005 (12.4″) and now April 21, 2021 with (4.5”).

Oh spring, where art thou?

“Ohioans know spring is fickle, but how strange is it to get this much snow this late?

“It is rare. Most of the daily snowfall records were from 1901.

“Our average last snowfall of the season is March 25 in Cincinnati, March 30 for Columbus and April 9 for Cleveland.

“The latest snowfall on record happened in Cleveland last year on May 11. It was only 0.2 inch.
