What was the shortest snow season Chicago has ever had?

Dear Tom,

What was the shortest snow season Chicago has ever had? When would the last snow have to be in our record-breaking late start in order to set a new record?

Karl Persons Homewood

Dear Karl,

The city’s shortest snow season, the number of days between the first and the last measurable snowfall of the season (at least 0.1 “) is 85 days, which was established during the shortened 2011-12 season, with the first snow of the season being on September 9th December and last on March 4th is a record for this season, late start on December 28th, the date for the last measurable snow would have to be March 22nd to set a new record, March 23rd to catch up Climatologist Frank Wachowski checked the archives and dates back to the winter of 1884/85, only about 20 percent of the city’s snow season had ended by March 22. One of them was last winter when the last measurable snow fell on March 15 .
