This Coming Winter May Be Milder Than Last Year's

While another winter is now upon us, it looks like it'll almost certainly be less snowy than last year's.

The National Weather Service says there's a good chance temperatures across Wisconsin will be a bit above average this winter.

That could translate into more rain, which means less snowfall and more snow melt.

Meteorologist Chris Franks says it's hard to say how much snow will fall, but it's unlikely it'll be the feet that buried the state last year.

That's when Madison had a record 101.4 inches, and Milwaukee got 99.1 inches -- each about twice yearly average.

Franks calls last year’s winter something of a worst-case scenario.
