Wisconsin, Minnesota snow / cool and clear here

James Spann posted snow photos from Wisconsin.

The temp this morning was 36.9 here and we are under an unofficial severe clear warning this morning.



The NWS Duluth has posted snowfall reports from yesterday's winter storm that travelled through their county warning area. Some areas of Iron and Bayfield counties in Northern Wisconsin now have as much as 15" of snow cover. In yesterday's storm alone, the Duluth area received anyehere from 10-17" of new snow. It appeared on radar that a band of heavy snow moved across Lake Superior and then "trained" right over the Duluth area. Look at the radar capture in the previous post.


Heavy snow slams Duluth Duluth News Tribune
"But the energy from that clipper also combined with winds off Lake Superior to create a virtual whiteout Tuesday afternoon in Duluth — a lake-enhanced snowstorm that dropped 16.8 inches of new snow on West Duluth by 9:30 p.m.... The unexpected burst of snow Tuesday (only a few inches from the clipper had been forecast for Duluth) combined with Saturday’s storm to leave 20 or more inches of snow on the ground in much of Duluth, the most in early December for more than a decade."

Notice at the end of the video the newscaster said, and I quote, "It sure was a little mess there."
