This winter seems to be hanging on tight with no signs of letting go. I can't be the only one who has thought that this winter seems longer than the average winter, right?

I reached out to WDIO Meteorologist Brandon Weatherz to see if this winter was longer than usual or if it was just in my head. He told me that this winter actually wasn't longer than usual, as our average last snowfall is the end of April.

He also told me that he believes, as of mid-April, that we will continue to see snow into early May. While we may not see big snowstorms, he says that we will see at least a little bit of snow a week or two into the new month.

Thankfully, all Northlanders are tough when it comes to winter so we know how to ride it out into spring. We have plenty of indoor activities to keep us busy until spring, whenever it may finally roll around.

So far, there is no spring in sight. FOX 21 Chief Meteorologist Sam Gabrielli shared more insight into April as a whole so far, as it is the month we sometimes welcome spring.

According to what he shared on his official Facebook page, this April isn't too out of the ordinary. He shared just how much snow we've seen and how it stacks up against other Aprils so far. Not only that, but he also shared how our average temperature this month stacks up against other Aprils.

There you have it! While we aren't seeing the snowiest or the coldest April, we are in the top twenty for both, so it is definitely worth noting.

Want some good news? Only a small portion of the state is dealing with drought. This was a huge problem last year and finally, things seem better in terms of drought across the state. The Chief Meteorologist shared this great news on his official Twitter page:

While we won't be seeing spring in the immediate future, at least we have some good news in the weather department.
