LA CROSSE, WI (WTAQ) - It may have seemed like a warmer than normal October in much of Wisconsin -- but it really wasn't. 

The National Weather Service said La Crosse had average temperatures and above normal precipitation for the month. 

The average temperature in the city was about 51 degrees -- six-tenths of a degree above normal. La Crosse received just over 3.8 inches of precipitation for October -- about 1.66 inches above the norm. 

A trace of snow was recorded on the 21st and 23rd in La Crosse.

Parts of far northern Wisconsin had over 3 inches on the ground for brief periods. That was earlier than normal, since most parts of the state don't get their first significant snows until November.

Temperatures are cooling down somewhat after a mild week. 

Highs during the weekend are expected to be in the 30's and 40's, with occasional snow showers mixing in with possible light rain at times. Milder temperatures return early next week.
