As winter in Southern New England has been relatively dry, with Providence receiving almost 20 inches less snow than normal, people may be wondering what the chances are of a late-season snowfall. Looking at historical winter storms, the April Fool’s Day storm of 1997 remains the biggest, dropping 18 inches of snow in Providence and up to two feet in nearby cities and towns. March 1956 currently holds the record for the snowiest month of March, with almost 32 inches of total snowfall, nearly half from the March 19 storm. In fifth place is March 1916, during which Providence experienced 19.1 inches of snowfall, with at least a trace of snow measured on 17 days. Although March 2023 has already seen some snow, with Providence picking up just over half an inch, the rest of the month’s weather remains unpredictable.
