Preliminary 2009-10 Wisconsin Snowfall Map - updated July 27

Let's take a break from all of this heat and humidity, and take our thoughts back to last winter for a moment.

Overall, Wisconsin had a below normal 2009-10 snowfall season.  However, snow was observed somewhere in Wisconsin for 8 straight months!  Some locations had snow in October, while on the other end, some spots picked up snow in early May, 2010.  A few locations in southern Wisconsin had near normal to slightly above normal snowfall, but not by much.

Below is an automated graphical plot of snow amounts across Wisconsin.

2009-10 WI snow map 

Listed below are selected locations across the state with the snow fall amount for the 2009-2010 winter. They are listed in order from the highest to lowest amounts.  The 166.9 inches that was measured in Ironwood, MI, was included in the snow map since Ironwood is immediately across the river from Wisconsin.  Their snow amount is representative of the far eastern part of Iron County.
