2010-11 Wisconsin Snowfall Map

Below is an automated contour plot of the observed snowfall totals across Wisconsin for the winter season of 2010-11....basically from October, 2010 through May, 2011.

Most of the state had at least normal amounts, and a good part of the southern and central counties had above normal amounts.  The Lake Superior snow belt in Ashland and Iron counties had the greatest amounts - roughly 100 to 167 inches.  These amounts are normal amounts for the snow belt.

Two other areas of the state seemed to be favored areas for repeated snow storms - a corridor stretching from the La Crosse area northeast to the Green Bay-Kewaunee area and from the Twin Cities northeast to the Rhinelander and Eagle River area.  Both corridors had snow totals in the 70 to 94 inch range.

Note - your specific location may have received more or less than the amount shown in the snow map.  Some smoothing was used to produce the snow map.
