Snow in April? How about May? It's happened before in southeast Michigan
Bummed out about an April snowfall? Hey this is Michigan. We’re used to it right?
Well, that depends on your perspective.

"From mid-April on, it is somewhat unusual," said Steve Considine, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in White Lake Township.
The last time the Ann Arbor area recorded snow after April 17 was 2005, when about 3 to 4 inches fell on April 24 and 25, Considine said.
But it’s not unheard of for southeast Michigan to get blanketed in snow as late as May.
“Detroit actually had a 6-inch snowfall May 9 in 1923,” Considine said, “and a 5-inch snowfall May 21 in 1883.”
