From: My Mother, although my Father had some small part.
Snows every spring. No big deal. Have had snow in May.
I don't live far enough north for it to snow later than that.
I have seen snow in June and in September and not in the mountains. Some people have told me about snow here during the first part of July, a day when a lot of people celebrate something.
But you probably would not guess the US state which it snows the most days of the year on average, three guesses.
That must be Hawaii.
I read somewhere that it snows 200 days a year there:
Snow blankets Hawaii summits amid winter storm warning

Three storms have dumped snow on Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea
by Nancy Atkinson, Universe Today
Trade winds blow from east to west across the Hawaiian islands, and the presence of Mauna Loa strongly affects the local climate. At low elevations, the eastern (windward) side of the volcano receives heavy rain; the city of Hilo is the wettest in the United States. The rainfall supports extensive forestation. The western (leeward) side has a much drier climate. At higher elevations, the amount of precipitation decreases, and skies are very often clear. Very low temperatures mean that precipitation often occurs in the form of snow, and the summit of Mauna Loa is described as a periglacial region, where freezing and thawing play a significant role in shaping the landscape.
Mauna Loa has a tropical climate with warm temperatures at lower elevations and cool to cold temperatures higher up year-round. Below is the table for the slope observatory, which is at 11,150 feet (3,400 m) in the alpine zone. The highest recorded temperature was 85 °F (29 °C) and the lowest was 18 °F (−8 °C) on February 18, 2003 and February 20, 1962, respectively
Know that Mauna Kea weather varies greatly and can change quickly. Daytime temperatures average between freezing and 45 degrees Fahrenheit. Summit winds above 120 mph are not uncommon, and there have even been snowstorms during the summer months. Not only that, but at 14,000 feet, be prepared for 40 percent less oxygen than at sea level.Weather

. . . Conditions at the top are extremely variable. Winter temperatures range from 25 to 40 degrees F (-4 to 4 C), but wind chill and the high altitude can make it seem much colder. Between April and November the weather is milder, with daytime temperatures varying from 30 to 60 degrees F (0 to 15 C).
