Sometimes a strip is so boring you just have to think of a science lesson. Snow must come from the moisture in the air. In the dead of winter, cold air has a very low dew point … little humidity. Even the strong storms result in less snow fall.
As the weather warms, the air can hold more moisture. Now the storms have a greater potential for a big dump. The big ones we remember tend to be the late fall and early spring storms.
