Milwaukee’s Second Snowiest Winter Ever!

Sean O’Flaherty

MILWAUKEE –

As of 7 a.m. Saturday, Mitchell International Airport in Milwaukee had recorded 96.9 inches of snow. [Kelly’s note: we had even more snow after Saturday at 7:00 a.m., folks, so this is already a little out of date] The National Weather Service says that amount ranked as the second snowiest winter season on record at Milwaukee. Below is a list of the top 20 winter season snowfall amounts for Milwaukee:

*The Weather Service points out that totals for Milwaukee will only continue to rise as the winter season still has the rest of March and into April remaining.

[Also, no point in even counting in Madison, anymore – they’ve already broken the record for MOST snow ever over there].

    Yes, but that would only be true if it were still winter and not spring.

    Hope things are good with you 3- soon to be 4!

    The strange thing is that we have been getting much less snow in my area. I guess it’s all shifting your way. Global warming at work???

    I think we got one snowfall with more than 3 or 4 inches this year. The rest was mainly dusting.

    Have you ever listened to the comedian Lewis Black? He made a CD in Madison. I think you would enjoy his views of your region.
