Impressive Snowfall Totals in the Upper Midewst
By any metric, 12 to 16 inches of is a massive snow. But, most people that live in Minnesota, Wisconsin and the U.P. of Michigan would just call it Tuesday. That said, the large snowfall totals in the region are pretty uncommon for early November.
While it wasn’t exactly record-breaking, some parts of the Upper Midwest were digging out from some pretty impressive snowfall totals, Tuesday morning. Big cities like Minneapolis, Milwaukee and Chicago were spared from the brunt of the storm; Minneapolis only recoreded 2.9 inches of snow, but just more of the city 4 to 6 inches of snow fell.
Some smaller cities recorded more than a foot of snow, leading residents to begrudgingly break out their snow shovels and snow blowers.
Here are some of the most impressive snow totals we found from this early shot of winter:
• 19″ in Negaunee, Mich.
• 15.5″ in Crytal Falls, Mich.
• 15.2″ in Gurney, Wisc.
• 13.5″ of snow in St. Cloud, Minn.
• 12″ of snow in Princeton, Minn.
• 11″ of snow in Watersmeet, Mich.
• 10.5″ in Ironwood, Mich.
Snow will continue to fall in places like the U.P. of Michigan and northern Wisconsin through the late evening hours. Additional snow is expected and WeatherNation meteorologist will be keeping an eye on it through the duration of the storm.
