First Winter Storm Of The Season Hits Upper Midwest
The season’s first significant snowfall for the upper Midwest dumped over a foot over northern reaches of Wisconsin and several other locations.
Lake effect snow left over a foot of snow across northern Wisconsin and Minnesota, ending Friday, with a few remnant flurries further east continuing into Saturday. For snow-heavy regions on the southern and western shores of Lake Superior, it was their first big snowfall of the season – and perhaps a bit overdue. October big snowfalls are common, but an unusually warm autumn to date has kept the lake effect snow machine in check so far this snow season.
The area could see another quick shot of snow later Wednesday and into Thursday on the backside of a significant low, but there isn’t expected to be nearly as much snow this time around. Stay with WeatherNation for the latest forecast.
