Snow is over, but not before breaking October records
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) - Our October snow surprise has left several inches of accumulation much of Western Wisconsin, with a sharp cut off to the south. Widespread totals exceeding 6″ have been reported from the Chippewa Valley, westward into the Minneapolis area. Here is just a small sampling of some of the snowfall reports in the region.
The nearly 7″ total in Eau Claire not only eclipsed the previous October 20th record, by nearly 5″, but also tops the list as the snowiest single day in October and was even enough to make this the all time snowiest October on record!
Though no additional accumulating snow is in the short term forecast, there is at least a small chance we may add to this total by the end of this weekend. Expect some melting in the coming days, but with temperatures generally remaining well below average, it may be longer than we’d like.
