This Halloween was the snowiest in Fort Wayne in more than 100 years.
The National Weather Service of Northern Indiana measured 0.5 inches of snow Thursday, ranking just behind the 1.5 inches of snow that fell on Halloween in 1917.
Typically the first measurable snowfall in Fort Wayne, with totals greater than 0.1 inches, happens on Nov. 14th.
It's not uncommon to see snow in October. The earliest measurable snowfall in Fort Wayne on record happened on Oct. 14th, 1937.
But that’s not the earliest we’ve ever seen snow: The earliest trace of snow fell in Fort Wayne on Sept. 25th in 1942.
If you thought October was really dry, you're not imagining it. 76 percent of the month's precipitation, both rain and snow, fell in the last 6 days of the month.
