Butler and Purdue are headed to the Sweet 16, but Indianapolis still hasn’t cracked the Big 10. Of snow. Still just 9.7 inches on the season. Last year: 13.3 inches and the average is a cool 25. Nothing likely for awhile at least. Here’s one computer model view of new snow through Friday. (Via WeatherBELL.)
There’s still time. The average date of last measurable snowfall in Indy is March 30. The latest? May 9, 1923. That’ll cut into the beer sales at the Track.
