This time last year, we had a few inches of snow on the ground, but where is the snow cover now?

Notice in the map above, you have to drive to the UP or Northern Wisconsin to find any snow.  Click here for the link to the  National Operational Hydrologic Remote Sensing Center to look at the National Snow Analysis.

So, are we falling behind for snow for this season?   Just a touch, but in the big picture, not really.  You have to understand that our November snow total on average is only 1.8″.  December fairs 8.2″ of snow on average, but our snowiest month is January at 10.5″.  So, if you are longing for snow, need not worry, our snowy season is still yet to come.
