Snowfall ended early Wednesday morning and amounts ranged from just a few inches in the southern part of the state to over 11″ of snow farther north.  March snowfall events of this magnitude don’t happen every year, but we’ve seen our fair share of snow during the month of March when looking at statistics.  According to the National Weather Service office in Indianapolis, we see a 4″ or high snowfall event every 5 years (since 1943).   When looking at our entire winter season, we are now only 1.3″ below normal for the amount of snow we should see for the winter months.  Indianapolis official recorded 4.4″ of snow from this event.
