WILMINGTON, Ohio (WTVN) -- Surely this nasty Ohio winter is done, right?

April usually sees an average of an inch of snow fall, but there's nothing in the short-term forecast that includes the dreaded white stuff.

"At least this first week of April is looking pretty mild. Temperatures are going to be above normal for the better part of the week, turning a little bit cooler as we head into next weekend," said National Weather Service Meteorologist Mike Kurz.

The Climate Prediction Center is calling for below-average temperatures for April as a whole. Normal highs are in the 50s.

"That's not to say that we'll be below freezing or anything constantly," Kurz said.

Snow isn't out of the question either. The latest snowfall in Ohio was recorded on May 7, 1989. Kurz says one more snow event for this winter is possible.

"We have statistics on our side. Going into April it becomes less and less likely that we could get additional snow," he said.

The good news is that if snow does fall at this time of year it won't stick around long thanks to the higher sun angle that quickly melts it off.
