Only one other time has April had more snow in La Crosse


Rain and snow are falling across the Inland Northwest Tuesday.

The average temperatures will mainly remain below normal the rest of the week with the exception Wednesday when strong, southwest winds will temporarily warm us to near 70-degrees.

The NWS office in Negaunee Township as of this morning only had one reading reported from the Dickinson-Iron county area - 9 inches of snow just north of Iron Mountain. With west winds occasionally gusting around 20 miles-per-hour, it will feel like it's in the upper 30s to low 40s. Friday looks tranquil. We expect a modest warming trend and some sunshine for the weekend. As pieces of energy rotate through this upper-level trough, the combination of them with surface low pressure across Ontario Canada and Great Lakes moisture will help to spark scattered rain and even snow showers, especially later this afternoon. West wind 10 to 15 miles per hour. With cold air aloft, instability will certainly lead to a fair amount of clouds bubbling up as well, so expect mostly cloudy skies.

Snow showers that are passing through the region this morning shouldn't add up to much in the accumulation department, but with temperatures largely in the 20s this morning, some icy areas are possible where snow is a bit more persistent and in any places wet roads from Monday have frozen over.

A low of -4 C is expected.
