LA CROSSE, WI (WTAQ) - A parade of tiny snowstorms is adding up to a real nuisance in parts of Wisconsin.
As of Monday, it has snowed in La Crosse for six straight days – and it looks like Tuesday will be the seventh. The city had almost 5 inches of snow last Wednesday. La Crosse then had three-tenths-of-an-inch last Thursday, 2.4 on Friday, 0.9 Saturday, 1.3 Sunday, and an inch Monday.
Tuesday morning, an unofficial weather station near La Crosse measured two-tenths of an inch. If that becomes official, La Crosse will have had a total of 10 inches of nuisance snows over a seven-day stretch. But that’s far from a record. It snowed 11 straight days in La Crosse in February of 1962.
Tuesday’s snow is expected to drop 1 to 2 more inches, with central Wisconsin getting the most. It’s supposed to clear out Tuesday afternoon. And most of Wisconsin could be hit with the next low-pressure system Wednesday night and Thursday.
That one could give us another 2-4 inches. It’s supposed to be dry on Friday and Saturday – but more precipitation could move in Sunday.
A warming trend will continue. Far southern Wisconsin could see 30 degrees Tuesday. Most of the state could get a few degrees above freezing starting Wednesday and at least into the weekend.
