Latest in the season, that is. You can define significant according to your own definition, as it varies according to location.

In parts of Upper Midwest, the April 8-9th 1973 blizzard produced 10-20 inches of snow. I was only 3 but I remember giant drifts extending up to the top of the roof of our house.

From the Milwaukee NWS website:
"Snowstorm 1973 - April 8-9, 1973. South half of state. 10 to 20 inches of heavy, wet snow. Wind gusts to 50 mph. Many roads, including the interstates, were closed for 2 days. Thunderstorms accompanied the snow, with snowfall rates peaking at 2-3 inches per hour at the height of the storm."


From the Saint Louis NWS website:

"On April 9...

1973: The worst April blizzard for Northern Missouri occurred with up to 1 foot of snow. Wind gusts of 60mph piled drifts 6-10 feet high, leaving many motorists stranded. One death occurred."
