An above average holiday, as far as weather stats go. The average high for an Easter in Indianapolis is 60.3 degrees. The average low is 39.9. (Let’s just call it 40.)
The coldest Easter morning on record is 15 degrees from 1940. The warmest Easter came, capriciously, a year later when it was 86.
The most snow that’s ever fallen on an Easter Sunday? In 1972 there was 0.3 inches. Indy had traces of snow on Easter in 2008 and 2007.
They’ll need a shovel to find the eggs in Anchorage, where a nearly 60-year-old seasonal snow record was broken this weekend. The 3.4 inches that came Saturday brings the total to 133.6 inches. The snowfall total is about double the normal number, and it just beat the record of 132.6 inches from the winter of 1954-1955.
